Doctor Who: The Invasion


spotify
Music by Don Harper, Special Sounds by Brian Hodgson & The BBC Radiophonic Workshop

The Invasion was an eight part Doctor Who story made and transmitted in 1968. Written by Derrick Sherwin (from a story by Kit Pedler) it starred Patrick Troughton as the second Doctor. At the helm was Douglas Camfield, one of popular television’s most maverick and talented directors in the 1960s and 1970s. The music was composed by Don Harper, the third Australian émigré composer (after Ron Grainer and Dudley Simpson) to work on the programme.

The master tape of the music for ‘The Invasion’ was lost soon after transmission, but Harper retained a 7½ ips ‘composer’s copy’ that forms the basis of this release. Additionally, the score was augmented by extensive use of electronic sounds by Brian Hodgson of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop.

Doctor Who: The Five Doctors


spotify
Music by Peter Howell & The BBC Radiophonic Workshop

The Five Doctors, made and transmitted as a 90-minute special in 1983, was the 20th anniversary outing for the good Doctor, seeing the incumbent Peter Davison joined by previous incarnations Richard Hurndall (standing in for the deceased William Hartnell), Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee and Tom Baker. The latter declined to return in person so soon after he had left, so was represented by some footage from “lost” story ‘Shada’.

The music was composed by Peter Howell at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. It was, in accordance with normal practice at the time, mixed in mono, so is presented here within a subtle mono-compatible stereo image. The sound effects for the story were by Dick Mills, but Peter was anxious to include the Death Zone atmosphere as part of the score so – with Dick still working on a previous project for a while – created that effect himself. The story would later be edited into the standard 4 x 25m episode format for syndication, for which Peter provided some additional “cliff hanger” cues.
In 1995, producer Paul Vanezis was contracted by BBC Video to produce a “Special Edition” of the story, extended beyond the original length (as determined by the transmission slot) and featuring updated visual effects. It was also decided to mix it in Dolby Surround (later updated to full 5.1 surround for DVD) so Peter Howell was called in to rework the music. Both versions of the score are presented complete on this release.

Humans Series 2 & 3


spotify
Music by Sarah Warne


Series 1 of Humans proposed the question, “What makes us human? Can a synthetic creation ever think and feel the way we do? And if so, what do we do about it?” It became Channel 4’s most watched drama in 23 years. Series 2 & 3 develops the ambitious drama further,  underlining its appeal alongside nominations for BAFTA, RTS and NTA awards. Sarah Warne has leapt to prominence as one of the UK’s most exciting young composers for television. She has also scored the BAFTA nominated Channel 4 True Crime series Catching A Killer, the feature documentary She’s French and hard-hitting BBC documentary Girls On The Edge. Other credits include series 2 of Red Productions’ thriller for ITV, Prey, starring Sean Bean and BBC documentaries, Treasures of Ancient Greece and Kate Adie’s Woman of World War One.

Edie


spotify
Music by Debbie Wiseman


Edie stars Sheila Hancock and Kevin Guthrie and features a truly moving performance from Hancock in the title role, an elderly woman, who in the aftermath of the death of her controlling husband, decides to fulfil a life-long dream of recapturing the magic she had as a young girl by climbing a Scottish mountain. Edie employs Jonny (Kevin Guthrie – Dunkirk, Whisky Galore!) to help her prepare for the gruelling climb ahead and this sparks a surprising friendship. Throughout the past 20 years, there are probably few people in the UK who have not heard a theme from one of Debbie Wiseman’s films or television productions. Whether it is watching Stephen Fry bring to life Oscar Wilde for the big screen, hearing the latest political commentary on a Sunday morning with Andrew Marr, or revelling in the Tudor world of Thomas Cromwell in “Wolf Hall”, Wiseman has gifted us iconic themes of beauty and passion, love and laughter. Her poetry collaboration with Alan Titchmarsh, The Glorious Garden, topped the UK Classical Chart in March this year. 

“Debbie’s music captures the soaring spirit of a lost soul reborn by the beauty of nature and smell of adventure but most of all by the human friendship of a kind young man.” – Simon Hunter, Director of Edie

The Changes


spotify
Music by Paddy Kingsland

The critically acclaimed BBC TV series, The Changes, was first broadcast by the BBC in in 1975, accompanied by music from electronic pioneer Paddy Kingsland, who wrote and recorded the score while working at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop.
The 10 part series, adapted from Peter Dickinson’s book trilogy, was perfectly suited to Kingsland’s seminal electronic style, following a teenager living in a Britain where machinery and technology emit a terrible, all-enveloping noise, causing the population to destroy them.

Kingsland used an early synthesiser, the EMS Synthi 100 (which was apparently so large, they had to remove the doors of the studio to get it through), overlaid with live instruments including sitar, percussion, tabla, flute and horns to create a soundtrack which is indicative of exactly how the BBC Radiophonic Workshop’s early output influenced and informed the popular electronic music of the Eighties and beyond.

Kingsland went on to write the music for (amongst others) The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (Radio and TV series), Doctor Who and Around the World in 80 Days, as well as composing for the KPM music library, who issued eight albums of his work. An LP of his Radiophonic Workshop output, “The Fourth Dimension” , was released by BBC Records in 1973.

Shetland


spotify
Music by John Lunn

Five years on from its broadcast debut, Shetland remains one of the most popular TV crime dramas on British television. Set in the subarctic archipelago north east of Scotland, the series, based originally on the novels of Ann Cleeves has received major critical acclaim and a BAFTA Scotland award for best TV drama. John Lunn’s music possesses a wonderfully unique voice that spans a wide spectrum of musical styles. Classically trained, yet contemporary in attitude, he combines a highly intelligent and sensitive approach with a sound that always hits at the emotional heart of a piece. His scores, which match the highest production values with a continual desire to discover new colours and sounds, are continuously in high demand. He is probably best known for scoring the hugely successful drama, Downton Abbey for which he received two Primetime Emmy Awards, in 2012 and 2013 and a further nomination in 2014, as well as a BAFTA nomination in 2012.

“If you want a spectacular score to accompany your British drama series, then look no further than John Lunn.” – The Huffington Post

Doctor Who Series 9


spotify
Music by Murray Gold

Premiering in September 2015, the ninth series of Doctor Who featured Peter Capaldi in the title role in his sophomore season as television’s favourite time traveller. This all encompassing four part collection features general cues on discs one and two, the complete score from the episode Heaven Sent on disc three and on disc four the Christmas Special, The Husbands Of River Song. Five time BAFTA nominee Murray Gold recently confirmed that he is stepping down from composer duties on the show after 12 years of providing some of the finest music to be heard on contemporary television. Underlining the breadth of Gold’s composing skill across over 149 minutes of music, this album is also the 12th Silva Screen release of his music since the 2005 Doctor Who revival. Murray Gold says – “It’s one of the last great morality tales out there but it also celebrates life. For that reason I think it’s a great show for kids. I couldn’t write this much music for it if I didn’t feel that way.”

The Blue Planet


spotify
Music by George Fenton & The BBC Concert Orchestra

A remastered reissue of George Fenton’s stunning orchestral score, which won Ivor Novello, Bafta and Emmy awards for Best Television Score on release in 2001. Produced by the BBC and narrated by David Attenborough, The Blue Planet series was watched by more than 12 million people when it aired on BBC1 in September 2001. It has since become a global phenomenon, showing in more than 50 countries “For as long as music has been written, the sea has been a major source of inspiration for composers; but not one of them had my luck in being given the amazing images of The Blue Planet. Three years ago when I was asked to write the music, I imagined footage which would be awesome, terrifying and magnificent. It is all of these things, but my lasting impression and for me the greatest achievement is that the remarkable films Alastair Fothergill, Martha Holmes and Andy Byatt have made, actually manage to make the oceans feel as natural a habitat as the land. They have achieved this by a spectacular mix of scientific knowledge and dramatic flair. They love what they do and it shows. The same is true of David Attenborough. His commentaries are distinguished in their understanding, love of the subject and luckily for me, their musicality.” – George Fenton
