              On Dec 7, 1941 America was attacked at Pearl Harbor and the USA was drawn into World War II that had started over two years earlier. This music tell the story & commemorates the people involved - especially the naval portion! The video is one of a contrast of time showing a beautiful pristine beach in one photograph and next - a part of World War II perhaps on the same island some sixty years earlier that is now mysteriously united by this famous musical score. It is hoped that we might learn possibly from this musical video that our current freedom & prosperity was purchased at a great price because freedom is never free! +++ Victory at Sea is a documentary television series about naval warfare during World War II that was originally broadcast by NBC in the USA in 1952--1953. It was condensed into a film in 1954. The music soundtrack, by Richard Rodgers and Robert Russell Bennett, was re-recorded and sold as record albums. The original TV broadcasts comprised 26 half-hour segments on Sunday afternoons at 3pm (EST), starting October 26, 1952 and ending May 3, 1953. The series, which won an Emmy award in 1954 as "best public affairs program", played an important part in establishing historic documentaries as a viable television genre. The project was conceived by Henry Salomon, who, while a U.S. Navy sailor during World War II, was a research assistant to historian Samuel Eliot Morison. Morison was then writing the 15-volume History of United States Naval Operations in World War II. During this period, Salomon learned of the large amounts of film that the warring navies had compiled. Salomon left the Navy in 1948 and eventually discussed his idea of a documentary series with one of his Harvard classmates, Robert Sarnoff, a rising executive at NBC television and the son of David Sarnoff, the chairman of RCA (then the owner of NBC). Salomon also signed Richard Rodgers, fresh off several successful Broadway musicals, to compose the musical score. Rodgers contributed 12 "themes"- short piano compositions a minute or two in length; these may be examined in the Rodgers Collection at the Library of Congress. Robert Russell Bennett did the scoring, transforming Rodgers's themes for a variety of moods, and composing much more original material than Rodgers, as may be observed in Bennett's written scores, microfilmed at the Library of Congress. Nonetheless, Bennett received credit only for arranging the score and conducting NBC Symphony Orchestra members on the soundtrack recording sessions, and many writers still refer erroneously to "Rodgers's thirteen-hour score".[1] Rodgers recorded excerpts from the music with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra for Columbia Records, but it was Bennett who made the more familiar RCA recordings with the Symphony of the Air, an orchestra created in the autumn of 1954 from former NBC Symphony members, identified on the albums as the RCA Victor Symphony Orchestra. RCA's record division sold the Rodgers-Bennett musical score in four different album versions, released on LP and CD. The listing below is based on the 1992 remastered recordings from RCA called "Victory at Sea" (13 tracks) and "More Victory at Sea" (11 tracks). Selections from "More Victory at Sea" are marked by an asterisk (*). Note that the "More Victory at Sea" album also includes "Special Effect Battle Sounds" as part of many of the tracks. The movements and approximate timings in the RCA Symphony performance are as follows: 1. The Song of the High Seas - 5:02 2. The Pacific Boils Over - 5:43 3. Fire on the Waters - 5:58 4. Guadalcanal March - 3:07 5. Pelelieu* - 3:37 6. Theme of the Fast Carriers - 6:44 7. Hard Work and Horseplay - 3:46 8. Mare Nostrum - 4:29 9. Beneath the Southern Cross - 4:04 10. Mediterranean Mosaic - 5:52 11. Allies on the March* - 5:15 12. D-Day - 5:55 13. The Sound of Victory* - 6:12 14. Victory at Sea - 6:14 15. Voyage Into Fate* - 6:20 16. Rings Around Rabaul* - 6:06 17. Full Fathom Five* - 7:08 18. The Turkey Shoot* - 5:18 19. Ships That Pass* - 4:53 20. Two If By Sea* - 6:27 21. The Turning Point* - 5:24 22. Symphonic Scenario* - 10:34 23. Danger Down Deep - 4:53 24. The Magnetic North - 5:45 The score was a favorite of US President Richard Nixon, and part was played at his funeral. Rodgers's "Beneath the Southern Cross" theme was given words by Oscar Hammerstein, titled "No Other Love," and put into their 1953 musical, Me and Juliet. The May 1953 recording by RCA recording artist Perry Como became a "Number One" hit on the pop charts later that year. - Wikipedia
