Radiophonic Times

Peter Howell

Peter’s musical career began in the late sixties, when he created five ‘psychedelic folk’ albums with his friend John Ferdinando. He joined the Workshop in 1974, and in the following year began work on incidental music for the Doctor Who television series. He went on to complete a highly-successful new realisation of its theme tune in 1980.

He also produced the Workshop album Through a Glass Darkly in 1978 and the very popular ‘Greenwich Chorus’, created for the documentary The Body in Question, along with a vast amount of other music, covering all genres of radio and television.

Peter’s latest book, Radiophonic Times, about his long and successful career with the Workshop, is available here.
