“The BBC Radiophonic Workshop provides a series of radiophonic sound and music effects for television and radio. We are often asked for sounds that have never been heard before. We have prospered because we have provided and realised them on anything and everything from the most advanced synthesiser/computer in the world to a red fire extinguisher, in approximately G sharp.”
– Desmond Briscoe, 1983.
