Description

Limited Arctic Pearl coloured vinyl pressing of Elizabeth Parker and the BBC Radiophonic Workshop's music from the BBC TV series.

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.

The ground-breaking score was composed by Elizabeth Parker at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop and released on vinyl by the BBC in the same year. Parker joined the BBC and in 1978 after gaining a master’s degree in composition and recording techniques at the University of East Anglia. She moved permanently to the Workshop’s Maida Vale studios where she realised the music for well over 300 TV and radio programmes before her departure in 1996.

The Emmy-nominated music for “The Living Planet” was performed on synthesisers, blending highly evocative themes, sounds and effects into a brilliant accompaniment to television’s stunning images of the Earth’s environments, and into an enthralling sound picture for this album.

Playlist

Drift Recommends


Alongside a weekly playlist of new and old tracks (tune in via the news section), all of the Drift staff also contribute to a weekly 'Drift Recommends' playlist.

Updated every Friday, it's full of new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.

You can subscribe to it via our Spotify public profile.
