The Living World
From 8th July 1968 (maybe up to the 15th September), Delia created two potential signature tunes for a weekly Radio 4 BBC programme The Living World with programme code TRW 6886 produced by Robina Gyle-Thompson of the Natural History Unit, Bristol and created by zoologist John Sparks.
The producer at the Natural History Unit, Bristol provided a tape of sound effects, a Mr Ball lent a tape of Eastern Nigerian sound effects for it and Delia also used a tape of library material.
Her papers include a folder containing her notes for it and some letters about it.
