Whovians and fans of early electronica alike, The Definitive Guide To The is a fascinating guide to the construction of that iconic piece of music. To wit: Doctor Who Theme Music
Created in 1963, the Doctor Who theme was one of the first electronic signature tunes for television and after nearly five decades remains one of the most easily recognised. The original recording of the Doctor Who theme music is widely regarded as a significant and innovative piece of electronic music, recorded well before the availability of commercial synthesisers.
