Publisher's Summary

Celebrating the 40th anniversary of Doctor Who, this release looks back through the radio archives and highlights the wide variety of Doctor Who features and interviews which have been broadcast over the years. Dozens of extracts - many of which have been unheard since their first broadcast - illustrate how the programme has been a national institution, held in fond regard by adults and children alike. Amongst those featured are Jon Pertwee, Tom Baker, Terry Nation, K9 and, of course, the Daleks. Also included is a one-hour documentary tracing the series' first thirty years, narrated by Nicholas Courtney.

Celebratory BBC Radio Documentaries

First documentary is presented by Nicholas Courtney, (the Brigadier) and includes interviews by early key figures (including Verity Lambert and Terry Nation) in celebration of Thirty Years of Doctor Who (1993). Sound quality is a bit patchy - some interviews sounded like they were conducted by telephone (Frazer Hines). However, it was chock full of interesting anecdotes about the early days of Who.

The Second one is presented by Lis Sladen (Sarah Jane Smith) and celebrates Forty Years of Doctor Who (2003). Includes a bit more on why Doctor Who is so popular and includes interviews with the likes of Douglas Adams, John Pertwee, Tom Baker etc. The last 20 minutes includes two or three short skits – the Doctor phoning Directory Enquiries asking for the Master was quite wonderful.

Both these Radio documentaries were made and aired during the “wilderness years” when Doctor Who was no longer being filmed by the BBC.

As a Who aficionado I really enjoyed this download and it was a treat to hear the presenters, both of which have recently passed away – hence the high rating.
