Stalin issues a secret order, authorising the execution of thousands of Polish citizens - from the BBC / PBS six part series 'WW2 Behind Closed Doors: Stalin, The Nazis & The West'.
This major series for the BBC was produced and directed by Laurence Rees in 2009, and used the wealth of Russian archive material that only became available after the fall of The Wall, to detail the extraordinary links between the Nazis, Stalin and the Allies during WW2. Laurence had never worked with a composer on his previous series (Auschwitz, The Nazis-A Warning From History), so I felt privileged to be chosen to score the entire project.
