As a kid I probably jumped past episodes of Doctor Who dozens of times before I stopped and watched my first episode. What made me stop and check it out? It was actually very simple, one time I was flipping at the top of the hour, so instead of catching the show in midstream I was hit squarely in the face and more importantly in the ears, by the Doctor Who theme. I was hypnotized.
On this clip from a kid’s show, our host drops by the famous BBC Radiophonic Workshop to find out just how this great piece of music was put together.
