Tube Bits for 07/22/2008

  • In 2001, Delia Derbyshire, the composer of the original Dr. Who theme music passed away. Unknown to all but a few, she left behind 267 tapes containing a multitude of unheard music. Now Manchester University’s School of Arts, Histories and Cultures has made some of these recordings available. Follow the link to hear some samples, including a ‘dance’ track way before its time, recorded in the late 1960’s.
  • Some Galactica news for you: The upcoming telemovie will focus on new characters instead of ones we’ve seen before, the new season will start in January 2009 (nice one Sci-Fi), and the series finale is, indeed, three-hours long. It had better rock if it’s going to as downer of an ending as has been hinted at.
  • Damon Lindeloff and Carlton Cuse (LOST) on the apparent death of Daniel Da Kim’s character Jin: No one’s ever dead on LOST. Read on for spoiler-ish info.
  • Yet another summer is here and there appears to be yet another LOST ARG in full swing. Who has the time for these things, especially since this one will run through next February.
  • Gary Scott Thompson, the new show runner for the updated Knight Rider series gives his thoughts for the future of the series. I’m not sure whether to be intrigued or horrified.
  • Empire Online has this very thorough look at the Watchmen trailer and how it compares to scenes from the comic. It sure looks cool.

  1. I have unreasonably high hopes for Watchmen. If it’s half as dark and angry as the source material, I’ll be in alternate-history-superhero-dystopia heaven!
