Detailed fact entry

Please find the details I have recorded for this fact below.

BBC - BBC Radiophonic Workshop

Do I have more tracks written by members of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop than any other for BBC releases?

Posted by Mike (2021-03-17).

Below is a table of the number of tracks listed with a writer. This is still being populated though!

It is interesting at time of writing the BBC Radiophonic Workshop writers currently still have a number of entries in the top twenty. The others listed are from the Goon Show, Portishead and the Stranglers! I recently decided to increase this to the top 20, only to find more of them at BBC Radiophonic Workshop people, I am wondering if I increase this further, which Workshop people would get added who are not listed!

The "Various" entry is here where the actual artist is not listed on the release.
