The BBC's Third Programme aired four radio broadcasts between January 1964 and September 1965, collectively known as Inventions for Radio.They were ground-breaking in both form and content, conceived by playwright Barry Bermange and consisting of the voices of the general public answering questions on four themes,one for each programme: dreams, the existence of God, life after death and ageing. At a time when it was unheard of to give a media platform to anyone perceived as being oflow socio-economic status, the broadcasts generated many complaints for the 'rough' voices of it's participants. Delia Derbyshire was assigned by the Radiophonic Workshop to edit and add electronic music/ effects.The collaborative result is dreamlike and mesmerizing, an audial window to another era.For many years Derbyshire was not credited for her contribution, nor were the broadcasts available commercially, although they still managed to acquire something of a cult following. This boxset includes one LP for each broadcast and two further LPs of additional material.There is a 20-page booklet with extensive notes by Mark Ayres (Producer) and David Butler, (one of the lead researchers andcurators of the Delia Derbyshire Archive and co-founder of Delia Derbyshire Day).The insight into Derbyshire's archive, her music and it's influences and her collaboration with Bermange is fascinating, providing context forthese extraordinary pieces which have been the most elusive of Twentieth Century classics until now.
