The series is a co-production between the BBC and
FremantleMedia, along with Ireland-based Boulder Media. It currently broadcasts on

I’ve worked with many composers over the years, but Sanj stands out for his innate sense of drama and comedy and the ability to really add something in terms of musical value to the overall piece.
He also needed no notes, which is unheard of - I think there was maybe 1 across a whole 52 episodes!
