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.

Giving this one a re-watch and in episode one alne there is some nice pastiche--I'm sure this is done at the command of the producers--evocative of Shore's Lord of the Rings music and one cue that channels Zimmer's Pirates of the Caribbean. The aforementioned--and greatly beloved by me--COAST series also employs this pastiche of score stylings yet manage to have its own voice and is distinctive while being at the same time reminiscent of those other things.

COAST did also use some pre-existing music such as this lovely piece which samples John Barry's PETULIA
