Cover blurb:
"We found to our cost, and to The Radiophonic Workshop's cost, that making it look easy proved to be our downfall."

Experience as a wireless mechanic in The Royal Air Force helped DICK MILLS to get a job at the BBC as a Technical Assistant in 1956, but he soon left to join the newly-formed BBC Radiophonic Workshop.

In 1963, he helped DELIA DERBYSHIRE transform RON GRAINER's written DOCTOR WHO theme tune into sound and music. He is best known for his many years work, especially between 1971 and 1993, creating sounds for the programme.

In this MYTH MAKERS, DICK talks frankly about life in the Workshop, its rise and eventual downfall... a victim, in some ways, of its own success!
