    This story reminds me of several other instances where someone has claimed the credit for someone else’s creativity or discovery.

    Hi Yvonne. Yes, some of us have known about Delia for a long time (I wrote about her contribution to the White Noise album last year) but her impact is rarely acknowledged. As I noted then, her realisation of Ron Grainer’s Doctor Who theme would for many people have been their first exposure to electronic music. The Radiophonic Workshop had a number of female technicians and composers, some of whom are catalogued here.
