Carey Blyton was a British composer and writer best known for his song "Bananas In Pyjamas" which later became an Australian children's television series, and for his work on Doctor Who. Blyton, a nephew of children's author Enid Blyton, showed a talent for science from an early age, and did not switch to music until he contracted polio and, as he was recovering, began taking piano lessons in 1948 at the age of sixteen. In the 1950s he began his training as a composer and won several certificates and awards. Blyton is primarily known as a miniaturist, composing short orchestral scores for live performance. He produced some well-regarded and often humorous pieces and also wrote incidental music for the BBC Doctor Who television series. He died in 2002 from cancer and post-polio syndrome, aged 70.
