John Cavanagh has this info for you lucky folks in "the London"...

"I'm sending this to friends who either live in London or who might be interested in Delia Derbyshire. Quite clearly, I understand many of those I 'invite" won't be able to attend, but I hope you're interested to know of this new film. I supplied interview material I recorded with the late Delia Derbyshire and also recorded a bit of voiceover for the film.

Here's some info about the film: The Delian Mode explores the life and work of electronic music pioneer Delia Derbyshire, the woman behind the distinctive Doctor Who theme music created at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop in the early 1960's.

The film delves into Derbyshire’s unique approach to sound recording and manipulation while supporting a slowly growing recognition of her as an influential figure in the history of electronic music.

Participants include Brian Hodgson and Dick Mills of the now defunct BBC Radiophonic Workshop, the founder of Electronic Music Studios (EMS) Peter Zinovieff, musicians Peter Kember (Sonic Boom), Adrian Utley (Portishead), and Ann Shenton (Add N to X) as well as other friends and colleagues of Delia. Directed by Kara Blake/
Duration: 25 minutes

Yellow Room, Spirit Level, Southbank Centre - The film will be introduced by Peaches at 6.30 and will screen on a loop until 9. Admission is free.
