Ben Bartlett – Composer
An award-winning TV and film composer. Over his 20-year career, Ben has written music for shows such as Vera, The Tunnel & Fiona’s Story. His score for the BBC blockbuster series Walking with Dinosaurs won a BAFTA & received a Primetime Emmy Nomination.
Ben says a big part of the inspiration for Blades in the Sky was the staff of Cornwall Air Ambulance themselves. When visiting the airbase, he heard all about their personal stories & connections to the work of the crew and helicopter, he says the mood that day really inspired the music. From conception, to composing, recording & putting together the final piece, it has taken over three years to create Blades in the Sky.
