Jump about fifteen years in the future from our last Haack! post. The seventies produced some of the best music thus far, and here is the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. The place where all BBC radio and television sound effects were created. The musicians included Ron Granier, Delia Derbyshire and John Baker, plus about forty more. The sounds were mainly creatd from keyboard/synthesizers and homemade instruments. A career that spanned decades and produced thousands of songs and effects. The earliest and most famous works are those of Doctor Who, where colonial men and futuristic robots run free.
