    I'm a new member here, and I kept myself busy these last days reading
    all the previous messages…well not all…Think I was already very
    well informed…but now even better !!! Something I would like to know
    is about the music used in series 3 when James and Caroline are on a
    small boat down the river Amazone with Baines (I think it is in 'Black
    gold'). It's a beautiful melody and I can't find out what it is. I read
    the messages from both Diana and Bill Murphy about other music, so I'm
    hopefull !!!!!!!!!

    Welcome to the group.

    Yes you have come to the right place, if anyone knows about the music score you mention, it will be one of our members.

    Black Gold is from series 3, if it helps I'll rip the tune from the section of the soundtrack and put it up as a small MP3 at the group site for identification.

    I name that tune in………

    No, this is not the music I meant…however I enjoyed this part too
    (even with the frogs πŸ™‚
    I have to be more specific…mmmmm….there is this moment when
    Baines is going to find a riverboat to go to Santarem. He is going to
    collect the rubber seeds with his Indian friends. James and Caroline
    are going to pay a visit to Ortega. The music starts when they are
    actually on the boat down the Amazone. They are enjoying the trip,
    Caroline points out some interesting things along the river to James
    and the music is quite romantic…(at least I think so).

    Yes, well,

    Tell me approximately how far into episode 35, in minutes the music is an
    I'll have another go, shows why I was never the romantic! πŸ™‚

    Then since my idea of classical music is the Stones and Beatles lets hope
    Bill Murphy is around to identify it…!

    Hope it's not too much trouble ?
    I feel a measure of guilt already…

    Hi, all –
    Β 
    A question for me if ever there was one!Β  I'll dig out my discs of Series 3 and check this out this evening. Of course, the music adviser then was dear Tony Isaac. I wonder how many of the group know anything about Tony, whose passing was such a dreadful tragedy back in – when? – 1979. By then he had moved on from Onedin Line to Warship and several other successful shows, and was doing pretty well. Then his whole world collapsed in about a week. His wife of six months left him, and – typical World of TV, I'm afraid –Β a producer who had asked him to provide all the music for a new show (a very big deal) was fired and replaced by someone else who brought his own composer with him. Tony had just signed the papers on a big new house in the country on the strength of this, and suddenly found himself about 50,000 pounds in the hole. I had the awfulΒ responsibility of telling producer Geraint Morris that Tony had hanged himself soon after production started
    on Series 7.
    Β 
    Years later, I had the similarly awful task of calling round old Onedin friends to tell them that Gerald Blake had been found dead in his flat in 1991. I was calling Gerry one morning to arrange lunch with him when a strange voice answered the phone; it was a coroner's assistant. Gerry had been going to treat me to lunch to celebrate my engagement to my present wife. For reasons too awful to describe here, there was no real funeral for Gerry's many friends to attend, and I was still meeting people five years later who had no idea that he had died. I still miss him horribly to this day.
    Β 
    Anyway, watch this space for the music!

    Indeed a very sad story…
    Did they ask him to be the music advisor for the series 7 (and 8) as
    well before this happened ? (because you said he moved on to Warship
    and other shows).
    Did you work together for a while or did you have to take it all over
    after his death ?

    Β 
    No – Tony Isaac left the series after Season 5 (or possibly 4 – this is from memory). The Music Advisor for Season 6 was Grant Hossack, who left to work on a couple of West End shows; that's where I came in. I knew Tony well, though, because he was sort of related to my then wife – he was my wife's cousin's ex-husband. The aunt was actress April Walker, who may be known to some listers for her appearances on Fawlty Towers and a host of other comedy shows. British television is basically a smallish village – you're never more than two degrees of separation from anyone.
    Β 
    When I worked on the show, I was living in my home town, Glasgow, and commuting. While in London, I stayed with my in-laws, and passed Howard Lang's house on Parsifal Road every morning. There was a pyramid of sea-boots in the living room clearly visible from the street!
