The sad news has reached me that British composer Geoffrey Burgon has died after a short illness at the age of 69. Burgon will be best remembered for his extensive work in British TV, composing scores for the likes of the Ivor Novello Award winning Brideshead Revisited; Doctor Who; Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy; The Chronicles of Narnia; Longitude; Cider with Rosie; Silent Witness; Martin Chuzzlewit; and the remake of The Forsyte Saga. He big screen assignments, though rare, include Monty Python's Life of Brian, Robin Hood, and The Dogs of War.
Away from the screen he composed works for full orchestra and soloists, ballet and even an opera.
He is survived by second wife Jacqueline and his three children.
