Delia Derbyshire doc gave us the woman behind the Doctor Who theme – and a whole heap of pretentious waffle
If you wrote off Arena: Delia Derbyshire: The Myths and the Legendary Tapes (BBC Four) in the first 20 minutes, I don’t blame you. It arrived on screen in a collision of images and sounds and a woman wandering around pushing a bicycle. Then we were introduced to Cosey Fanni Tutti, founding member of the group Throbbing Gristle. It threatened to be like one of those terrible video installations that make up the Turner Prize list these days.
