The Delian Mode
The Delian Mode - trailer from Philtre Films on Vimeo.
Just received the DVD of this Canadian short documentary by Kara Blake on the great electronic music pioneer Delia Derbyshire (of BBC Radiophonic Workshop fame). I really enjoyed it, it's made with great sensitivity and a pleasant lack of exaggerating superlatives (unlike this piece on Delia that I watched just after it, sorry Unmann-Wittering, I still love your blog). The film is shown on many festivals at the moment, but you can also order the DVD for cheap on their website.
In any case, you need to know more about Delia Derbyshire! Start with this clip:
