Dont know if this is the right place for this. But here goes anyway

This was a pod cast done during Whooverville2013 (Doctor Who fan convention).

Dick Mills who worked for the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, talks about the composition, creation and recording of the Doctor Who theme.

I found it very interesting. Especially his remarks about just how primitive their equipment was compared to what we have today.

The video is in 2 parts
Part 1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9COYiD9VZ0I (30 minutes)

Part 2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7BTPvJZuUUQ

In part 2 he talks about how they tried to catalouge the workshops collection of sounds. Also talks about the method they used to compress the time of a track and keep the pitch the same. Also pitch correction of a singer who was off pitch. Unfortunately this video clip is cut short

Hope someone finds this interesting.

I hope some one
