30 Years at the Radiophonic Workshop was a soundtrack containing various sound snippets from the original series of Doctor Who.

Publisher's summary[edit | edit source]

From the very beginning of Doctor Who music and sound effects - whether it be the TARDIS landing or the firing of a Dalek gun - have been integral to the programme's success. Indeed, for millions of people the signature tune to the programme is enough to take them back in time to the days when it was watched from behind the sofa!

This unique collection has been compiled to celebrate Doctor Who's 30th Anniversary and includes music and sound effects covering the entire three decades of the programme, from episodes such as The Dalek Invasion of Earth and The Web of Fear right up to Shada and the new Radio Five dramatisation, Paradise of Death.

It features all the favourites as well as some previous 'lost' pieces including The Delaware version of the Signature Tune.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Most of the track listings were listed with the corresponding stories they were from. The original spellings of all the tracks has been maintained.
  • The cover notes state:

Brian Hodgson and Dick Mills provided all the special sounds for the entire series, whilst Delia Derbyshire created (or 'realised' as we like to say) the audible theme from Ron Grainer's original score. Peter Howell transformed the Theme at the time of the Workshop's total commitment of sounds and incidental music, whilst Elizabeth Parker can now hold her head a little higher with this eventual release of her incidental music for 'Timelash'.
