hidden talents

The BBC has just discovered an archive of recordings made by Delia Derbyshire, the woman who composed the classic Doctor Who theme music (but the credit was taken by someone else).

They are amazing, and well ahead of their time.

Paul Hartnoll, formerly of the dance group Orbital and a great admirer of Ms Derbyshire's work, said the track was, "quite amazing".

"That could be coming out next week on [left-field dance label] Warp Records," he noted.

This story seems reminiscent of numerous instances where someone discovered or created something that was then credited to someone else.
