Kaleidophon created sound for the National Theatre's 1970 production of George Bernard Shaw's play Back to Methuselah featuring Joan Plowright.[1]

Delia's papers include a clipping from the Radio Times, listing "Back to Methuselah: A Metabiological Pentateuch by Bernard Shaw"[2] but the transmission highlighted in biro is "An ABC in Sound: Poems by Bob Cobbing, which Delia created sound for, so the Methusaleh mention on the same page may just be a coincidence.

The labels on its master tapes misspell call it Methusaleh.

Availability

Three of the Attic Tapes are labeled Methuselah (or Methusaleh) 1, 2 and 3".[3][4][5]
