The Sound of TV with Neil Brand (BBC4 mini-series)
« on: December 19, 2020, 04:50:17 PM »
Hi library music fans! I hope my thread is in the correct forum.

The Sound of TV with Neil Brand, a three-episode documentary series just finished airing on BBC4. As you might expect it covers a broad range of topics, from the earliest TV programme theme tunes up until present day, music for commercials, BBC/ITV/Channel 4 idents, and much more, including sections on library music, KPM/Keith Mansfield and Test Card music which may be especially interesting to members here. Thought you might appreciate being tipped off about it, I've certainly enjoyed this series a great deal. The first episode will only be available for the next 20 days so if you're interested in catching it, definitely don't sleep on it too long! (note: it may not be possible to watch this if you do not live in the UK.)

Yes first two were great and will watch the last one this weekend.  Spotted plenty of LPs along the way- KPM, THEMES, De Wolfe..

Yep- not available in the US- too bad. Or- time to get that VPN set up.

I tried, but you apparently need some sort of TV license number to see videos from the BBC.

The second episode is currently on youtube though it may be cropped and stretched to get around the copyright.
