Episode 3 – Series 22, Part I – Jonathan Gibbs and the Rani

In this episode we will look at Jonathan Gibbs’ work on Serial 6X – Story 140 – The Mark of the Rani. The Mark of the Rani originally aired between the 2nd of February to the 9th of February 1985.


DEDICATION: This episode is dedicated to my brother Fred to whom I owe much, especially my Early Music career and for showing me that in music we get to time travel every day.

NOTE: John Lews’ score to Mark of the Rani will receive it’s own podcast episode later.

ABOUT OUR THEME: The theme to ADVENTURES IN TIME, SPACE AND MUSIC is a remix by Isaac Arsenault. Isaac started mashingup music in the winter of ’09, After reading Jordan Roseman’s “Audio Mashup Construction Kit.” Working with sound Equipment and being technical leader for two bands he opened his taste for music by studying it mathematically and learning the science behind it.
