Library tracks:

Robert Farnon was born 1917, and died in 2005. The Canadian composer, conductor and arranger moved to the UK after world war 2, and, like Barry Gray, settled on the island of Guernsey. Farnon worked extensively in film and television. Among his memorable theme tunes are Armchair Theatre (1956-1974), Colditz (1972-1974), and Secret Army (1978). He arranged and conducted albums for Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett. He won four Ivor Novello Awards. His library music is also heard in The Infernal Machine, Mission Of The Darians and New Adam, New Eve.

David Snell was born in 1936 in the UK, and worked as a harpist, composer and conductor (no relation to the US film composer of the same name). He conducted the music for the films Emma (1996), The Cider House Rules (1999) and Chocolat (2000). His harp track "Stratosphere" is slowed down in this episode.

Cecil Leuter (real name Roger Roger) and Georges Teperino were French composers whose music was also used in Force of Life. Another track by Roger appears in The Infernal Machine.
