I see it now. Thanks for the correction.

I finished all 10 episodes. I was a little disappointed many cues in the final episode were re-used from earlier episodes. But they worked, nonetheless.

I tried to find "Making Scotland's Landscape", the next documentary he did, but none were up. I did, however, find a video of some sessions for the series:

So I next moved on to another documentary series, "Gal√°pagos".
The music is again orchestral, with some lush and occassionally big moments, but it doesn't grab you instantly like "A History of Scotland". Nonetheless it probably makes a strong CD. I can't say what there is; shows a listing, but no tracklisting and no information on whether it was physical or download-only. I assume since it was the ame label for the Scotland series, Rage Music, that it's physical, too.
IMDb and SoundtrackCollectgor lists two other composers, but only Leonard-Morgan is credited. A quick search shows the two other composers work together scoring projects sometimes. Perhaps they had a score replaced on the series. Maybe they rescored for another country. Who knows.

The 'Galopagos' CD is available from the shop at Paul Leonard-Morgan's website.

I've just ordered a copy.

Price is £9.99 + shipping

Goes for silly money at

There's a lot of Paul Leonard-Morgan music to pay and/or download, here:

And now I have found "Making Scotland's Landscape" and I have finished the first episode.

It's not as big and bold as the history of documentary series special on Scotland, but it's got a number of plesant and nice cues, particularly the smaller pieces with piano.

I suspect each episode will bring a little something different and each one deals with a different element. This one dealt with the trees of Scotland and the history behind them. The next episode is about the land.

In the end I believe there will probably be more than enough for a good CD or CD set.

Sadly, Alan Parker's score for 'Coast' hasn't had an album release.

And that is a real shame.
