George Fenton

George Fenton is one of the UK's most successful film and television composers. He talks to Tommy Pearson about his collaborations with directors Richard Attenborough, Ken Loach, Andy Tennant and the film-maker and naturalist David Attenborough. In Part One, Fenton outlines his work with Richard Attenborough (on Gandhi, Cry Freedom and Shadowlands) and Ken Loach (on Ladybird, Ladybird, Sweet Sixteen, Land and Freedom and many others) - two very different directors who make contrasting demands on Fenton as a collaborator. Fenton also discusses much of his early work in television.
In Part Two Fenton talks about working on the BBC natural history films of David Attenborough (including Trials of Life, The Blue Planet and Planet Earth), the extraordinary success of the Blue Planet Live concerts, and the big-screen romantic comedies and dramas of director Andy Tennant (Sweet Home Alabama, Hitch, Fool's Gold).
