Little Red...


...and the Fear of Depth


Once upon a time I went to the Royal Festival Hall with my friend Deborah to see 'The Blue Planet' – a BBC nature documentary about sea life, usually narrated by David Attenborough, but on this occasion accompanied by the London Philharmonic Orchestra, performing the original score.

Contrary to my expectations, the film was not shown as one on-going long feature but was segmented into short little sequences and at the beginning of each the conductor gave us an introduction to the next scene.
