Alchemists of Sound

Doctor Who and The Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy were among shows owing a musical debt to the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. This is the story of the pioneers who created futuristic sounds on basic equipment.

Documentary: Alchemists of Sound: 9.00pm BBC4
The whoosh of the Tardis dematerialising. The roar of a Vogon constructor ship. The rumble of Major Bloodnok's stomach. All these sounds originated in the BBC's Radiophonic Workshop. Its denizens were sonic pioneers, synthesising before there were synthesisers, concocting new fusions of music and noise using cut-up tapes, gutted pianos, banks of oscillators, cutlery and anything else that came to hand.
They also frequently received calls from people who thought they repaired radios. And their mutant tones enhanced countless children's programmes, which explains why this enrapturing documentary is narrated by Oliver Postgate. He should really get them to create the sound of a dropped Clanger. (Quentin Cooper)

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
