The Sound Makers – Inside The BBC Radiophonic Workshop

Electronic music blog It’s Full Of Stars has shared a fun vintage audio tour of the BBC’s Radiophonic Workshop from 1963:

The Sound Makers is a documentary about synthesis and sound manipulation at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop from 1963. It was part of the BBC’s RECORDED PROGRAMMES PERMANENT LIBRARY which is an archive on vinyl, I believe limited to only a few copies of each.

The documentary is interesting for its insight into the production techniques that were state of the art in the 60’s Radiophonic Workshop – but is also entertaining because of its “gee whiz” tone.

You can preview the first part of the documentary below. See myblogitsfullofstars for more and download links.
