The Boy Who Turned Yellow (1972)
On a further tangent to the previous post, I've recently been enjoying a Children's Film Foundation classic "The Boy Who Turned Yellow". This was the last collaboration between Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger and features some daft SF capers involving travelling by television, the Tower of London and a pair of white mice, alongside a few nice 'electronics in the classroom' moments.
The electronic music and effects were created by David Vorhaus, the other member of White Noise alongside Hodgson and Derbyshire, who has continued to trade under the name since their departure.
