I originally posted this on my own blog but decided this really needed to go on to FO. The Great White Silence is brilliantly restored 1924 documentary, about Captain Scotts ill fated 1910 expedition to the Antarctic. This has now been released by the BFI on DVD and Blu-ray. The film has an amazing new score, composed by Simon Fisher Turner. Ken Hollings interviewed Simon Fisher Turner about his score for the film in the June edition of The Wire magazine.
