The BBC Radiophonic Workshop was formally created in 1958 to help develop the state of sound in radio and television. It developed rich innovative sounds and music throughout its history for many television and radio shows, but the Workshop is most famous for its work in the Science Fiction series Doctor Who. Besides composing the theme music for Doctor Who, the Workshop also created the sound effects (such as the sounds of the TARDIS, the Daleks, and the Cybermen).

The BBC has released several Audio CDs of the Workshop's music and effects, including several for Doctor Who. Due to financial cutbacks, the Workshop was merged with the Radio division in 1996-98, and today it mostly restores and catalogues music.
