BBC Wild Isles - The story of the music

Wild Isles composer George Fenton on scoring the natural world, and how we relate to the sounds of our islands.


To complete the story of the BBC's magnificent Wild Isles series, we thought you might like to see this sort film about the composing of the background music. It's something we perhaps take for granted when watching each episode, but that is perhaps as so much work and thought goes into matching the score to the action. Well worth a watch at just under 3 minutes.
