Broadcasts, films and shows this week

London Calling – Part one of Building the Olympic Dreambadge

Tonight – 4th March 09 on BBC2 at 9pm

Features my score for the London Symphony Orchestra ‘This is London’ which was based on several well-known traditional British songs as well as The Shipping Forecast (as read by Zeb Soanes) and, of course, the Greenwich Time Signal.

Also should be a chance to hear the version of Whole Lotta Love I worked on with the LSO, Jimmy Page and Leona Lewis (with the correct clear sound… rather than what was broadcast!).
