Gen in on Derbyshire

Something to somehow bookmark on iPlayer, next week's Archive On 4 is being given over to the life and work of Delia Derbyshire. has more:

Producer Phil Collinge commented: "Delia’s realisation of the Doctor Who theme is just one small example of her genius and we’ll demonstrate how the music was originally created as well as hearing individual tracks from Delia’s aborted 70’s version.

“We’ll also feature the make-up tapes for her celebrated piece ‘Blue Veils and Golden Sands’, and hear Delia being interviewed on a previously ‘lost’ BBC recording from the 1960s.”

The programme seems to be saying 'there's a lot more to her than Doctor Who', although most of the pre-publicity seems to be focused on Doctor Who.
