Annotated Track Listing
With reference to the Production as Broadcast paperwork (available from the BBC website) and the DVD isolated soundtrack it was possible to match the individual cues to their original names and durations. However, since the PasB listings for Part One appeared to be inaccurate - the track lengths were entirely different - the titles listed (m1, m2, etc) have not been kept for the annotations below, even though the nineteen 'm' cues could be roughly translated to the nineteen cues on the DVD. The correct titles have been used from Part Two onwards, though the timings (which remain slightly different on the paperwork) have been corrected.

Here is the PasB listing for Part One in full, for comparison with the actual cue timings:


CD
LP
1.
A1.
Doctor Who (Opening Theme) (0:39)

2.
A2.
Androzani Minor (1:46)
Part One cues one (0:25), two (0:10), three (0:18), four (0:26), five (0:10) and six (0:12). Stereo versions of the second and third cues were included in the suites prepared for Doctor Who - The Music II in 1985, and on The 50th Anniversary Collection in 2013.

The timings for Part One on the PasB document are all inaccurate, so it is known to be untrustworthy, but it is interesting to note that m2 is not listed - the paperwork jumps from m1 to m3. The total number of cues in the episode eventually matches with the paperwork, as the numbers are made up by the listing of cues sixteen and seventeen as m17 and m17a. Could there have been an unused m2?

3.
A3.
Gun-Runners (0:59)
Cues seven (0:09), eight (0:13), nine (0:17), ten (0:11) and eleven (0:08).

4.
A4.
Morgus and Chellak (1:06)
Cues twelve (0:36), thirteen (0:19) and fourteen (0:09).

5.
A5.
Death Sentence (1:36)
Cues fifteen (0:30), sixteen (0:28) and seventeen (0:26). This track included eight seconds of unbroadcast material, with the last cue fading to silence where the original soundtrack (and isolated score) cut out early.

6.
A6.
Sharaz Jek (1:49)
Cue eighteen.

7.
A7.
Death Under the Red Cloth (2:10)
Part One cue nineteen (1:54) and Part Two m2.

2m1 was a re-recording of the cliff-hanger music, timed slightly quicker and with a different drum beat at the end, shown below. 2m1 had been included on the isolated score, segued with the opening title music, though was not featured here.

Part One cue nineteen

Part Two m1 (not included)

8.
A8.
Androids (0:50)
2m3 (0:20), m4 (0:15) and m5 (0:18).

9.
A9.
Next Time It’ll Be for Real (1:07)
2m6. A stereo version of this cue had appeared in the original suite.

Four short cues from the soundtrack were found to be missing from the Radiophonic Workshop archive, and were not included on the isolated soundtrack, or this CD. All were short percussion pieces, similar in content to the track 'Sharaz Jek', and two of them were not even listed on the PasB paperwork. The first, untitled cue appeared in the episode between 6:41 - 6:51 (10 seconds), between 2m6 and 2m7.

10.
A10.
Nobody Lives for Ever (2:16)
2m7 (0:17), m8 (0:24), m9 (0:46), m10 (0:33) and m11 (0:15). The end of cue m9 may have been the source for the opening chord in the stereo suites.

Two short percussion cues appeared in the episode between 8:00 - 8:10 (10 seconds, unlisted between 2m8 and 2m9), and between 9:24 - 9:32 (8 seconds, listed on the PasB paperwork as 2m9a). Both are missing.

11.
B1.
Spectrox (1:11)
2m12.

12.
B2.
Salateen (0:32)
2m13 (0:15, though listed as 0:44 on the PasB document) and a second cue (0:17). There are two different 17-second cues in the score at this point, only one of which is listed on the PasB document (as 2m14). It is therefore not possible to tell whether the untitled cue comes before or after the real 2m14!

The final missing cue appeared after 2m13 between 15:27 - 15:35 (8 seconds), titled 2m13a.

13.
B3.
Exile (1:06)
Untitled cue, possibly 2m14 (see above, 0:17) and 2m15 (0:50). A stereo version of 2m15 was included in the stereo suite.

14.
B4.
Clever Little Android (0:44)
2m16 (0:33) and m17 (0:12).

15.
B5.
Two Kilos, What a Deal (0:50)
2m18.

16.
B6.
The Magma Beast (2:14)
2m20 (0:20), a succession of cues marked on the PasB sheet as 2m21/m21s/m22 (1:10), and 3m2 (0:11). The track included 32 seconds of material (from 1:08 - 1:40) that was not used on-screen, and was previously unreleased. Note that 3m1 was not included, though its appearance on the isolated soundtrack confirmed that it was merely a twenty-second repeat of 2m22.

17.
B7.
Blind Fools (0:34)
3m3 (0:13) and m4 (0:20).

18.
B8.
Tear His Arms Out (2:37)
3m5/6 (1:50), m7 (0:26) and m8 (0:18).

19.
B9.
Stage Three (1:54)
3m9 & m9a (1:18), m10 (0:37).

20.
B10.
Geostationary Orbit (1:43)
3m11 (1:01) segueing into m12 (0:40), as heard on-screen.

21.
C1.
The Girl Will Be Alone (1:28)
3m13.

22.
C2.
Peri Abducted (1:28)
3m14.

23.
C3.
Vertical Descent Pattern (0:32)
3m15.

24.
C4.
It Could Have Been Worse (2:08)
3m16/17/17 (listed as one item on the PasB document).

25.
C5.
Do You Think I’m Mad? (2:56)
3m19.

26.
C6.
The Doctor Pursued (3:13)
4m1 (1:05), m2 (0:44), m3 (0:15) and m4 (1:06).

27.
C7.
Mud Burst (1:58)
4m5 (0:36), m6 (0:21) and m7 (1:04, though listed as 0:40 on the PasB document).

28.
C8.
Morgus and Stotz (1:03)
4m8.

29.
D1.
Face Off (1:11)
4m9 (0:39) and m10 (0:31). A stereo version of 4m9 appeared in both versions of the stereo suites, in different positions.

30.
D2.
Morgus Kaput (0:37)
4m11. A stereo version was included in the suite.

31.
D3.
Not Beaten Yet (1:21)
4m12/13 (shown as one listing on the PasB paperwork).

32.
D4.
Milk of the Queen Bat (7:04)
Impressively labelled on the PasB file as 4m13a/14a/14b/14c/14d/14e/14f/15. The CD track included 23 seconds of unused material at the end, which had been previously unreleased. Stereo excerpts from this track were used in the suites, with extra material included in the 50th Anniversary Collection version.

33.
D5.
Return to the TARDIS (0:50)
4m16.

34.
D6.
Is This Death? (2:18)
4m17 (1:11) and m17a (1:06). Stereo versions of both cues were used in the suites, with extra music in the 50th Anniversary Collection version. The suite added a gentle closing chord after the explosive regeneration cue, though this was not heard on-screen and was not included on this album.

35.
D7.
Doctor Who (Closing Theme) (1:20)

In total the album featured 1:03 of previously unreleased material (in the tracks 'Death Sentence', 'The Magma Beast' and 'Milk of the Queen Bat'), though lost the repeats of cliff-hanger music that had been heard on the DVD isolated score: 2m1 (39 seconds) and 3m1 (20 seconds). The lost cues from Part Two, which were absent on both DVD and CD, totalled 36 seconds.

Annotated Track Listing
The was one of several stories in Seasons Five and Six for which Brian Hodgson of the Radiophonic Workshop provided incidental music posing as “special sounds”. All of these tracks were presented in their entirety on this album, though were not credited to any particular episode or scene; the annotations below place the cues in context.

CD
LP
1.
A1.
Doctor Who (New Opening Theme, 1967) (0:52)
Mark Ayres' extended notes for Doctor Who at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop Volume 1: The Early Years described this track as follows: “This new version of the theme debuted (probably) during The Faceless Ones. Sadly, many episodes from this period no longer exist, so it is not possible to be certain. We do know, however, that Episode 1 used the original theme, whilst Episode 3 used this new one. This is the complete new master recording, as only the start was redone.”

2.
A2.
The Learning Hall (2:40)
Background atmosphere, first heard at the start of Episode One and repeated throughout the serial for scenes set in the Learning Hall. First released on Volume 1: The Early Years, track 64.

3.
A3.
Door Opens (0:36)
An extended version of the 'door opening' buzz, which generally played for around 5 seconds. As Hodgson explained in his sleeve note: “at that time we did not see the edited tapes in advance, so longer tracks such as doors and rising hums were often created to be faded up or down as required in the studio or at a dub.” This effect was first heard at the start of Episode One and recurred throughout the story.

4.
A4.
Entry Into the Machine (1:33)
On-screen this segued with the door sound, above. A short extract was heard each time the Machine door opened within the Learning Hall, though only in Episode One. First released on Volume 1: The Early Years, track 65.

5.
A5.
TARDIS (New Landing) (0:18)
Heard in Episode One. This was mixed with the wasteland atmosphere (below) in the episode.

6.
A6.
Wasteland Atmosphere (1:23)
A background atmosphere for the exterior of the planet, which was looped and repeated during all outdoor scenes in Episodes One and Three.

7.
A7.
Machine and City Theme (1:19)
First played in short bursts as the TARDIS crew approached the city in Episode One, then heard as the Doctor and Zoe entered the Machine in Episode Two. This cue was released on Volume 1: The Early Years, track 67.

8.
A8.
Machine Exterior (1:43)
An ambient sound effect, heard in Episode One for scenes set outside the Machine doors.

9.
A9.
Panels Open (0:17)
10.
A10.
Dispersal Unit (0:40)
11.
A11.
Sting (0:19)
These three cues were shortened and segued together on-screen, underscoring the dispersal of Abu Gond in Episode One. The first two were sound effects for the Machine dispersal unit; the 'Sting' was incidental music, and was repeated in Episodes One and Two.

The 'Dispersal Unit' cue appears to have been re-used in Episodes Two, Three and Four as the sounds of the Snake and the Krotons firing their weapons. 'Sting' was first released on Volume 1: The Early Years, track 66.

12.
A12.
Selris' House (0:41)
Background atmosphere for scenes set in Selris' home, first heard 13 minutes into Episode One. It was repeated for the duration of each scene.

13.
B1.
Machine Interior (1:16)
Atmosphere for scenes set inside the Machine, first heard 19 minutes into Episode One.

14.
B2.
Snake Bleeps Low (1:01)
Heard as the Snake inspects the screen within the Machine (on-screen this was mixed with the Machine Interior, above). It was heard in short bursts in Episodes One and Two.

15.
B3.
Silver Hose (The Snake) (0:45)
Sound effect of the Snake, emerging into the Learning Hall at the climax of Episode One. On-screen this was mixed with the Learning Hall atmosphere and the high beeps, below.

16.
B4.
Snake Bleeps High (0:30)
Heard as the Snake inspected the Doctor at the end of Episode One/start of Episode Two. The album track repeated the beeps in close succession, but they were spaced out on-screen.

17.
B5.
Teaching Machine Hums (0:43)
The sound effect of the functioning machine, heard in Episode Two.

18.
B6.
Forcefield (0:47)
This sound effect was first heard in Episode Two, played at the same time as the 'Burning Light' effect (below).

19.
B7.
Burning Light (1:05)
First heard in Episode Two, as Vana remembered her ordeal. Its main use was in conjunction with the forcefield effect (above) as the Doctor, Zoe and Jamie were examined by the Krotons in Episodes Two and Three.

20.
B8.
Birth of a Kroton (1:10)
Long version of the sound effect used in Episodes Two and Four.

21.
B9.
Kroton Theme (2:13)
A short burst of the Kroton Theme was first heard five minutes into Episode Two; it was then played during all scenes featuring the Krotons. The sound was released on Volume 1: The Early Years, track 68.

A short version of this cue, running to 1:55, was filtered into stereo and released on 30 Years at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop in 1993, on the track 'Kroton Theme with Birth and Death of a Kroton'. The birth effect was not included, though a fast version of the death effect was (see below).

22.
B10.
Kroton Dies (0:34)
An extended version of the sound effect from the end of Part Four, heard in the programme mixed with 'Link - Rising Hum' (below).

This sound was first released within the pseudo-stereo suite, 'Kroton Theme with Birth and Death of a Kroton' (30 Years, track 28), played at double-speed. The start of the sped-up version may also have been the source of the gun effects heard in Episodes Three and Four as the Krotons fired their weapons, mixed with the dispersal sound (see above).

23.
B11.
Link - Rising Hum (2:04)
Heard in Part Four before the Krotons are destroyed. Most of this cue was unused in the programme.

24.
B12.
Kroton Dies (alternative) (0:19)
An unused, alternative version.

Annotated Track Listing
The following listing explains which cues were included in each track, with reference to the Production as Broadcast paperwork (available from the BBC website) and the 2004 isolated DVD soundtrack.

The album was faithful to the original 1993 CD release, with track titles retained throughout and the extra cues (three short pieces) given their own separate tracks, marked as 'previously unreleased' (though by this time they had been featured on the DVD).

CD
LP
1.
A1.
Doctor Who (Opening Theme) (0:55)
The theme music had not been included on the original album, so was a welcome addition to this release. The theme was presented here without sound effects, matching its appearances onThe 25th Anniversary Album (1988), The Best of Doctor Who Volume 2 (1994) and The 50th Anniversary Collection (2014).

2.
A2.
The Madhouse (3:52)
1m1 (1:25), m1a (0:23), m2/3 (1:04) and m4 (1:07). The second cue, m1a, was longer by six seconds than the original album, where it had segued into M2/3. This extra material had also been presented on the DVD.

The 1994 album The Worlds of Doctor Who presented an eight-minute Ghost Light suite, featuring two excerpts from 'The Madhouse' of 1:23 and 1:03. The track was also included on The Best of Doctor Who Volume 2, with two short cuts between 1:24 - 1:39 (15 seconds) and 2:43 - 2:48 (5 seconds). All the Ghost Light material on this disc was segued together into a continuous 23-minute suite, and was presented with the stereo fields reversed. An excerpt (1:25) appeared on The 50th Anniversary Collection suite in 2014.

3.
A3.
Redvers, I Presume? (0:44)
1m5/6. (Cue names split with “/” were presented as one listing on the PasB document, as the music played continuously.)

The final 21 seconds were included in The Worlds of Doctor Who suite and The 50th Anniversary Collection suite, and some material also appeared on The Best of Doctor Who Volume 2 as part of the track 'Ace's Adventures Underground' (two excerpts from m15, lasting 21 and 18 seconds, opened the track).

1m16 (0:24), m17 (1:13), 2m1 (approx 1:50 of the original 2:09 cue) and 2m2 (1:44). This track ran six seconds longer than the original CD release due to extra space between the cues.

Both versions of the CD album omitted the very end of 1m17 (the Part One cliff-hanger), cutting to 2m1 for the Part Two reprise. 1m17 was included in full on The Best of Doctor Who Volume 2, in The Worlds of Doctor Who suite (slightly trimmed, as part of a 1:06 excerpt from this track), on the DVD (segued with the title music), and on The 50th Anniversary Collection suite in 2014.

Ace's Adventures Underground (alternative) (1:31)
Ayres had written in his original 1993 sleeve note about his unused, early version of Part One; he had arrived at the dubbing session with a first draft that both he and producer John Nathan-Turner felt was in need of more work, so an extra week was granted for him to re-record the soundtrack. This was the first time that the unused versions of the tracks had been released.

In total 1:37 from the original soundtrack was included on this album that had not been part of the 1993 CD, with 'The Madhouse', 'Gwendoline', 'The Fang of a Cave Bear', 'Burnt Toast', 'Ace's Adventures Underground', 'The Hungry Inspector' and 'Tropic of Perivale' featuring extra material... though one second was cut, from 'The Way to the Zoo'. The original cliff-hanger cues for Parts One and Two were not included on CD, though were reinstated for the vinyl edition.
