Fans of classic BBC TV & radio programmes...

...including but not limited to Doctor Who, Blake's 7, The Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The Goon Show, and the Quatermass serials, may well be interested by this news...

From the press release:

Mute Records are proud to announce the release of a 50th Anniversary Retrospective double CD from the Radiophonic Workshop. This brand new compilation features classic, extremely rare and previously unavailable sounds and music by the legendary BBC organisation. Presented in chronological order, the CD includes works from stalwarts of the Radiophonic Workshop such as John Baker, Delia Derbyshire, Daphne Oram, Elizabeth Parker, Desmond Briscoe, Paddy Kingsland, Peter Howell and Malcolm Clarke amongst others.

Full details, including an absolutely mouth-watering (if you're into that kind of thing) track listing, here. The Greenwich Chorus? The full version of The Astronauts? The Whale - which I can only assume to be a bit of H2G2 incidental music? Basically most of the 21 album? My poor, poor wallet...
