Radiophonic Workshop, The - Possum OST (RSD 21)

Radiophonic Workshop, The Vinyl Records

For decades the BBC Radiophonic Workshop has produced the majority of incidental electronic music broadcast over British air waves, their adherence to cutting-edge technology pioneering countless creative innovations. The department was formed in 1956, when senior studio manager Desmond Briscoe and music studio manager Daphne Oram agreed upon the need "for something other than normal orchestral incidental music"; a year later, the Radiophonic staff produced one of their first experimental radio productions, Private Dreams and Public Nightmares, and in 1958 they were awarded their own studios at the BBC's Maida Vale facility, complete with a budget of £2,000. The first popular television series to feature a Radiophonic soundtrack, Quatermass and the Pit, premiered soon after; before long the crew was responsible for scoring over 150 programs a year, the majority of them for TV.
