A new feature-length film about Delia Derbyshire is set to premiere online as part of the BFI London Film Festival next week.

The film, which mixes archival footage and interviews with dramatisations, is the work of Caroline Catz, making her directorial debut and also starring in it.

Cosey Fanni Tutti has been enlisted to create the soundtrack using samples from Derbyshire's posthumously discovered Attic Tapes. The film will premiere on the BFI website on October 15 at 6.30pm BST, and will be available for streaming until the evening of October 18. You can watch a trailer for the film above.
