Firstly, I’d like to point out that I watch A LOT of documentaries. Period.
No matter the topic, I will most likely without hesitation, watch it. And, so how I came about this documentary I guess, it’s a long story.
Also, secondly I’d like to add that I listen to A LOT of podcasts and like many of you one of my favourites is This American Life, and it was through this podcast I came across this piece of music. To my surprise this song was arranged by THESE GUYS!
You’ve probably heard this piece of ear candy ( or maybe you live under a deliciously damp rock?) but more to my point upon googlingz the original piece I discovered that Cinematic Orchestra composed the soundtrack to THE . CRIMSON . WING .
The Crimson Wing is actually kinda old and I couldn’t believe I hadn’t seen or heard of this brilliant doco before (see my first sentence referring to how much I watch documentaries but in case you missed it, It’s A LOT). So apart from the hauntingly beautiful soundtrack, the incredible arial shots are what really had me “hook, line & sinker” for the first 2 minutes and after that I was entranced.
Just do yourself a favour, If you like documentaries, especially about nature and what not, then flock (see what I did there? Cause It’s about birds!) to our good friend the interwebs and find yo’ self a copy to watch. You won’t regret it.
