Simon Schama’s The Story of the Jews is on air this month over BBC 2.
This 5 hours of beautiful documentary was a fantastic and challenging project to score with string recording in Berlin and more recording of vocalists, soloists and mixing at Air Studios in London.
At least fifty percent of the music was written before the editing stages and the rest of the music was written during the edit.
The series will be broadcasted next in the US and later on many TV channels around the world .
