Delia created the Dance from Noah for the programme Noah produced by Dickon Reed for the BBC radio series Drama Workshop.[1]

Here's a dance from Noah, written by Delia Derbyshire for the BBC using Synthi equipment. Its mixture of gaiety and sadness make it irresistible for children to dance to.[2]

Its tape's catalogue entry is dated January 1971.[1]
