A cinematic portrait of the legendary musical innovator Delia Derbyshire is written and directed by Caroline Catz, who also performs the lead role. Catz’s directorial debut is a conceptual and atmospheric journey into the legacy and character of electronic music composer/sound pioneer Delia Derbyshire, who, in 1963 conceived one of the most familiar compositions in science fiction, the Doctor Who theme, while working at the BBC’s Radiophonic Workshop. 

Delia Derbyshire: The Myths & The Legendary Tapes is a life story told through sound. Delia’s own musical creations are featured alongside a soundtrack by musician/performance artist Cosey Fanni Tutti (Throbbing Gristle, Chris & Cosey, Carter Tutti Void), constructed from samples chosen by Cosey and Catz from Delia’s posthumously discovered “Attic Tapes”. Delia Derbyshire: The Myths & The Legendary Tapes explores the fantasy of an otherworldly creative collaboration, an exchange of ideas between two unique and fascinating maverick female artists, traversing temporal and spiritual planes.
