Earth’s Natural Wonders are some of the most breathtaking places on earth - vast mountain ranges, impenetrable rainforests and frozen polar worlds. For the people who call these extraordinary places home, survival can pose incredible challenges.
A new 3-part programe on BBC One shows these breathtaking places, as a documentary series with stunning visuals and a bespoke score by composer Nainita Desai.
Manners McDade’s Nainita Desai is a current BAFTA Breakthrough Brit 2016-17 and the winner of the Music+Sound Award 2016 for Best Feature Film Score, a Women in Sync Awards 2016 Nominee, RTS Craft Award 2014 Nominee for Best Original Music and RTS Scotland Awards 2014 Nominee.
Having recently completed writing the music for Earth’s Natural Wonders and Rituals, both natural history documentaries for BBC, Nanita’s latest project was C5’s Raped: My Story, a feature-length film composed purely of rape survivors speaking directly to the viewer to recount their experience, this film stands out for its heart-breaking authenticity and its desire to get to grips with a subject matter that is commonly silenced.
