Geoffrey BurgonGeoffrey Burgon

 

Television would not be the same without Geoffrey Burgon – he has created some of the best-known soundtracks and themes: Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy with its unforgettable endtheme ‘Nunc Dimittis’ which entered the pop charts; Brideshead Revisited, often referred to as ‘the greatest score ever written for television’, as well as Longitude and The Forsyte Saga both of which won him a BAFTA for Best Original Score. His work in film includes Monty Python’s Life Of Brian, Turtle Diary and A Foreign Field starring Alec Guiness and Lauren Bacall.
