BBC World to release ‘BBC World – The Music’

In response to the unprecedented demand received from thousands of viewers for information about music played during the programme breaks, BBC World will this week release a specially commissioned CD single of the channel’s incidental music.

This release is in response to dozens of emails received every week by the channel’s Customer Relations team and enquiries to BBC staff around the world.

Working with BBC Music and members of the BBC World team, composer David Lowe produced three new titles based on the original 30-second tracks, which, along with a mix of the on-screen version, have now been released as ‘BBC World – The Music’.

“This amazing response began on day one back in April 2000 when the music was first played on the channel – and it never stopped”, explains Paul Coleman, BBC World’s Operations Manager. “We have a very loyal and enthusiastic audience across the world - we’re delighted to be able to take customer relations one step further and offer our viewers what they’ve been asking for.”

Warren Peden, executive producer on behalf of BBC World, said: “The music’s originality and innovation have certainly proved a hit with viewers. The feel of the music reflects the channel’s fresh, modern and up to the minute outlook.”

The single is being sold via mail order by the BBC World Customer Relations team, priced £5 (plus postage). For more details logon to channel’s website www.bbcworld.com.

BBC World is the BBC’s 24-hour international news and information channel, reaching 192 million homes in 200 countries and territories worldwide (90 million 24-hour homes).
