A pioneer in the field of electronic music, Tristram Cary served as a wartime naval officer specialising in radar and electronics. He combined a career at the cutting edge of experimental music with works for cinema (The Ladykillers), television and radio.

      I don’t think much complete Dudley Simpson scores still exist, I know The Sunmakers does so Genesis, pyramids, and death to the daleks are not available..

    • Philip

      September 24th, 2017 - 8:56am

      …and I think there is only about 8 minutes of the invasion music, the 5 Drs and tv movie are more likely though.

    What’s stopping them releasing Series 9?

      Murray Gold Probably or the BBC, they are not being supplied with the music to release

      Is there anyway to contact Murray Gold. No one can ask him about it on Twitter because he’s not been active since 2012/13.

      Murray Gold needs to go.

    I looked up the CD on Amazon and it said ‘temporarily out of stock’. This usually means it’s gone for good. Are the CD’s sold out already?

    • booboo

      probably just sold their 1st allocation other sellers have them

      Surely that’s a good sign then?
