The start of episode 2 has the above as a quiet background with people talking over it, then the rest of episode 2 and the other 4 episodes have just filtered noise and simple effects.
It's always seemed odd that Delia seemed to have had nothing further to do with Doctor Who after making the theme, despite all the activity that there must have been at the RW to make sound for the programmes. We can only guess why, but if this is indeed the Beyond the Sun music for which she is credited, this also seems to be the point - in just the second story of the series - at which she backs out of the Doctor Who programme and leaves making its sound to the rest of the Radiophonic Workshop.
