I still think this was the best version [Sep. 17th, 2010|09:55 pm]

I stumbled on all this while looking for something totally unrelated (doing a book outline, oddly): a montage from the old BBC 'Chronicles of Narnia'. The music is infinitely better than the Disney version. Not sure how it would stand up now, but it had the genuine sense of magic that the new ones sadly lack.




That Geoffrey Burgon could write a tune... (thought I think this not the original). Ah, the days when ITV (well Granada) could do drama --and kick the BBC's ass.

Have you heard? Geoffrey Burgeon died on Tuesday 21st Sept.

A bit of a sad coincidence after this posting. My favourite of his was Nunc Dimittis - the theme to Tinker Taylor Soldier Spy.

Yes, I did notice it on the BBC website --sad loss. Wonderful music. Didn't know he was a mate of Terry Jones, though.
