Delia created the sounds effects and music sequences for the BBC TV adaptation of Isaac Asimov's book The Naked Sun, directed by Rudolph Cartier for the BBC TV series Out Of The Unknown in which "Detective Baley must solve a murder on the planet Solaria, where reclusive people have their every need attended to by robots."[1]

It was filmed 23rd-26th July 1968 with studio recording on the 8th and 9th August and broadcast on BBC on 18th February 1969[1] while Delia's notes say it was recorded on the 7-8-9th August.[2][3]
