Canals: The Making of a NationAugust 26th, 2015
This Friday, the first episode in a new six-part series about the canals will begin on BBC1. Although it is not the first time I’ve worked on music for film and television, this is the first time that myself and fellow colleague, Sam Hobbs, have collaborated in a substantial BBC commission together – composing, performing, recording and producing the music in our respective studios in Airedale and Wharfedale. The music also features some of Leeds’s finest musicians – including the inimitable guitar work of Mark Creswell & Jonny Flockton, and the multi-instrumental skills of musical polymath Richard Ormrod. Intrigued? Be sure to tune in!
Unfortunately, I’ll be en route to 06°45′57″N 73°10′33″E, but will be thinking of the canals, every inch of the way…
Canals: The Making of a Nation, is broadcast at 19:30 on Friday, August 28 on BBC1.
