LONDON, UK -- Members of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop (RWS) have regrouped for a series of electronic music events this year, including the recent BBC Proms, which celebrated the 50th anniversary of the science fiction TV series, Doctor Who. For the events, the RWS has been making use of a Behringer X32 Digital Mixer and EuroLive Active Loudspeakers.

Established in 1958 to provide sound effects and original music for BBC radio, the RWS went on to create music and soundscapes for some of the BBC's radio and TV programming, including Doctor Who. Although the BBC decommissioned RWS in 1998, original members Paddy Kingsland, Peter Howell, Roger Limb, Dick Mills and Mark Ayres are working together again on a new album and a series of live events. The project will include collaborations with popular musicians who have all drawn from the RWS' work over the years.

RWS's current rig features a Behringer X32v Digital Mixing Console, two S16 Digital Snakes, the Powerplay P16 Personal Monitoring System, Eurolive B812NEO Active Loudspeakers and B1800 PRO Active 18" subs.

To celebrate the return of RWS and the anniversary of Doctor Who, the RWS joined a 200-strong cast of musicians for the BBC Proms at London's Royal Albert Hall on July 13. The concert, broadcast live on BBC Radio 3, will also be shown on BBC television in November as part of the Doctor Who anniversary celebrations.
