The BBC Radiophonic Workshop turned 50 this year, and I pay tribute to the amazing work of this innovative electronic and electroacoustic music studio that created the music and sound effects for such radio and TV shows as Dr Who, Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, The Changes, Blake’s 7, Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, Quatermass and the Pit, Goon Show, Planet Earth and various BBC for Schools programmes and idents – along the way helping to develop many early electronic music techniques, and promoting electronic music in the UK and abroad.
Happy Birthday Radiophonic Workshop!
