The Soundtrack


Genesis of the Music

The soundtrack to the series is composed by Mike Batt (who composed the soundtrack for the 1978 film, too). Batt is supported by Stephen Gately, who covers the theme song "Bright Eyes", Cerys Matthews and Paul Carrack.

On the CD are songs, that originally should be part of the film, but then, they are not used in the final version.

The score is played by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Mike Batt. "In Fields of Sun", which is played in the front credits of the first two seasons (and is not part of the soundtrack), is arranged by Andrew Lloyd Webber. Also, the songs of the third season are missing (except "A Kind of Dream (Choral Fantasy)", which can be heard in the finale).
