Nice! Just starting to watch this. This would have been my dream job, I think.

I love this old electronics stuff. Especially if it's a bunch of cold war Brits in cool suits. Highly recommended along these lines, but it's a spy thriller The Ipcress File.

The Radiophonic workshop was one of the coolest parts of the BBC ever. I had no idea there was a documentary. Thanks for posting!

Great post! I always wondered how they made all those sounds pre-digital.

Time Beat by Ray Cathode is *awesome*

One thing to take away from this doc is how the women who actually did some of the most recognized work were never given proper credit, and seldom are their names mentioned in association with that work.
