Submission + - BBC Radiophonic Workshop revived online (

ratbag writes: From BBC news: "The BBC's Radiophonic Workshop, which created theme tunes and sound effects for programmes including Doctor Who and Blake's 7, is to reopen after 14 years. The original workshop was known for its pioneering use of electronic sounds. Founded in 1958, it was best-known for creating the eerie swoosh of the Doctor Who theme tune, but its compositions were also used in numerous radio dramas, The Goon Show and The Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy.As well as music, the workshop created sound effects — from champagne corks popping to the distorted, strangulated voices of the Daleks.'

Drilling for oil is boring.
