Arabic Science and Industry is Delia's 23-second long 'arabic' version of the signature tune for a radio programme Science and Industry, which ran from the late 50s to the present day.[1]

A signature tune was created in 1959 by Maddalena Fagandini and Phil Young[2] and in 1962[3][4] Delia created a new theme for BBC producer Mrs D. C. Ingrams.[4]

It also gets called "Arabic Science and History" and the notes to its Radiophonic Database entry read:[4]
