Another World

I've just been watching Worth the Risk? the sixth volume of the Central Office of Information public information films to be released on DVD, and like the other discs in the series there is a bounty of fear, neurosis and death to delight all ages. 

It's difficult to single out one individual highlight from the dozens of shorts included here, but I've chosen to share Another World, one of the lesser known works of the fourth Doctor Who.

The uncredited 'soundtrack' (three minutes) is "all killer, no filler", the opening syncopated drums and fuzz bass like a poor man's Lalo Schifrin, moving to anxious brass and synth squelch. I would be grateful for any suggestions as to the identity of the composer - Alan Hawkshaw perhaps?
