Composer of theme - Ron Grainer

Electronic sound arrangement - Delia Derbyshire

BBC 10 Pieces explains that when Delia joined BBC Radiophonic Workshop in 1960, a special team provided unusual sound effects. For the famous Doctor Who Theme “Delia had to record hundreds of electrical beeps onto tape,

adjust the pitch of each individual note and then splice them all together to create a bass line or a melody”.
