The autobiography of Peter Howell

40 Years with the Radiophonic Workshop, In the studio and on the road

In a career which stretches from Dante to Doctor Who, Peter Howell has been a folk singer, author, lecturer, electronic pioneer and all points in between.

As a member of the legendary BBC Radiophonic Workshop, he recreated the iconic Doctor Who theme tune for the 1980s, and worked with some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry, composing for a wide range of programmes and projects. More recently, he has toured as a member of the Radiophonic Workshop live band, reaching a whole new generation of fans.


By Ned Netherwood

With extensive access to the Daphne Oram and Delia Derbyshire archives, and interviews with associates and members of the original BBC Radiophonic Workshop, this book contains all you need to know about the innovative and experimental geniuses who were responsible for a golden age of electronic music in Britain and some of the most famous sounds to be heard on UK television.

From the period just before the Workshop was established right up to its dissolution in the late 90s, and rebirth today, all the history is here. Not only that, but author Ned Netherwood also provides the first ever in depth guide to the discography of the Radiophonic Workshop and its members.

Whether you are a Doctor Who fan who loves the theme tune, an experimental music enthusiast with an ear for abstract sound or an obsessive record collector, there is something for you here.
