First time release on CD / digital for this groundbreaking score, composed by Elizabeth Parker at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop.. Originally shown on BBC1 in 1984, this David Attenborough 12 part series was the sequel to the pioneering Life On Earth, taking natural history television to a new level of brilliance. After a Masters degree in composition and recording techniques at the University of East Anglia, Elizabeth joined the BBC and in 1978 moved permanently to the Workshop’s Maida Vale studios where she realised the music for well over 300 television and radio programmes before her departure in 1996. The Emmy-nominated soundtrack was performed on synthesisers, blending highly evocative themes, sounds and effects into a brilliant accompaniment on television to film of the Earth’s environments, and into an enthralling sound picture for this album.
