Good news for those of us brought up on The Goon Show, BBC Schools signature tunes and William Hartnell as Dr Who – the BBC Radiophonic Workshop is being reopened

I remember listening to the story of the Radiophonic workshop on 4 Extra a couple of months ago. (That was a weird morning!)
Marantz M-CR603 + AirPlay • Rega R3 loudspeakers • iPhone 5 32GB • iMac • Apple Airport Extreme 802.11n • Panasonic TX-L32D25B • Sony BDP-S390 • Ruark Audio R1 Deluxe • Humax HDR-Fox T2
That's great news! I saw a TV documentary on them a few years ago (2009?) - I think around the time they did the live reunion at the Roundhouse - it was fascinating, especially seeing the stuff they used. I think it followed on from them finding loads of original (thought lost) tapes.
Having seen who the creative director is, I think they going to be way out there...
