Tristram Cary

Tristram Cary was already a renowned electronic music composer when Delia started at the BBC.

By a cruel twist of fate, one of her very first assignments at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, in July 1962, was to create electronic sound for a BBC programme Science Serves the Arts about electronic music in which they interview Tristram, leaving Delia uncredited and unnamed.

She was to meet him some years later at Unit Delta Plus and he can be seen on the 15th January 1968 in the Queen Elizabeth Hall video, announcing pieces of UDP music which Delia then sets in motion on stage.
