Mae 'euraid' enillydd BAFTA Cymru cerddoriaeth ffilmiau; Welsh BAFTA Film Music Winner is 'Gold'
Michael Beek at the website 'Music from the Movies' writes:
Welsh BAFTA for Murray Gold:
The best music being written for the small screen at the moment is without doubt Murray Gold’s Doctor Who. Every Saturday evening on BBC1 the time-travelling doctor’s adventures are accompanied by a full, blazing orchestral score and the quality of the work, week in, week out, is astounding.
It’s a numbing schedule for the composer, but once in a while a well deserved pat on the back comes along and one such accolade came Gold’s way this weekend. Saturday night (April 28th) saw the BAFTA Cymru Awards, aka the Welsh BAFTAs, which took place at Cardiff International Arena.
Murray Gold took home the award for Best Original Music Soundtrack for the Doctor Who episode ‘The Impossible Planet’, beating himself and Ben Foster for the series’ spin-off Torchwood and David Ayers and Felix Todd for the popular BBC series Tribe.
For those of you wondering why Doctor Who is in the running for Welsh BAFTAs then it’s because it’s produced by BBC Wales and filmed in and around Cardiff, even the music is recorded there. The hugely popular series won in eight of the thirteen categories it was nominated, a great achievement indeed.
