Theatre Corner - Delia Derbyshire in the 60s

Mark from Sweden dropped me a note about this epic and fascinating site about the Dr Who theme music, composed recorded by the utterly legendary Delia Derbyshire (Born 1937, told aged 22 that women couldn't work in recording studios, went to Geneva to work for the UN, came back, got a job at the BBC, became genius, made music for programmes like 'Great Zoos of the World', hung with Beatles around time of Sgt Pepper, became disillusioned once synthesizers were invented - they made weird noise-making too easy, worked in a bookshop, and died a happy legend in 2001). And now her life has been turned into a play, which is on RIGHT NOW at the Tron Theatre in Glasgow. Sample review: "Like Delia’s music, this show is electric."
