Cover blurb:
The BBC Radiophonic Workshop's long (and continuing) association with the Doctor Who series began with the Signature Tune [sic] for the very first programme. Ron Grainer provided the composition noted and the Workshop did the rest.

During the past twenty years, the Workshop has provided all the special sounds and latterly, the incidental music for the past three series. Most famous sounds are, of course, the Tardis materialisation and dematerialisation sounds (not an elephant in labour, but the strings of an old piano recorded and treated) and the treatment of speech which produced the Dalek voices. Brian Hodgson was creator of the sounds for the first nine years, since which time Dick Mills has continued the tradition still making full use of the Workshop's synthesizers and acoustically recorded real sounds.

The incidental music is composed by Malcolm Clarke, Peter Howell and Roger Limb on a shared basis over the series, which accounts for the varying styles of composition but which are nevertheless just what the Doctor ordered.

Track Listing:
Same as UK LP edition, although the first track on Side B (Omega Force Field) is listed on the sleeve as "Omega Field Force", a mistake which also made its way onto the picture disc edition below.
