This series, produced by Granada, was all about machines and how men harness them. This particular clip of music was about the power that these machines could give but also how dangerous they could be and how, if used unwisely, they could actually end up killing.
OK, I know I seem to be putting up a lot of the BBC ‘Making of Planet Earth’ tracks but I really enjoyed working on it and love the music that I wrote for it. This track was for an incredibly dark sequence in which one of the largest lion prides in Africa attack and slay an elephant within a herd, at night.. being filmed with special infra-red cameras. It’s an incredibly brutal sequence, but very powerful.
