As the London days grow shorter, it’s no hardship to be spending so long in the warm studios of Air and Abbey Road. I do hope you enjoy our newsletter and follow on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook for all the latest photos, films and music.

A short film documenting the event can be found here.
FILM & TV
Congratulations to all the crew and cast of Sherlock: The Amboninable Bride which won the Emmy for Outstanding Television Movie at the 68th annual ceremony.
Michael and David Arnold are currently writing and recording for Series 4 which is thrilling as always.
There will be a second series of Unforgotten, the moving ITV crime drama, coming in the New Year too. We’ll be in the studio for that in the coming months.
War Story is a video and music piece inspired by the 1941 broadcasts of Seaman Frank Laskier. These recordings, now in The British Library audio collection, create a visceral, personal link to the individuals caught up in the Second World War, and by reflection, inform our own times. The video footage was shot in one continuous take on Margate Harbour.
