SOUNDTRACK TO CHRISTMAS!

The Unthanks have composed and performed the soundtrack to Mackenzie Crook's reimagining of Worzel Gummidge! Written, directed by and staring Crook himself as Worzel, the two part special also stars Zoe Wanamaker, Michel Palin and Steve Pemberton. 

Following Mackenzie's use of Mapgie from Mount The Air as inspiration for the third series of The Detectorists, The Unthanks were asked to compose and perform the music to both new instalments of Worzel Gummidge, showing on Boxing Day and the 27th on BBC1 this Christmas.

The soundtrack is predominantly devised and scored by Unthanks pianist and producer Adrian McNally with written contributions from Rachel Unthank and performed by the whole band.

WORZEL GUMMIDGE
(featuring soundtrack by The Unthanks)
BBC1 Boxing Day 6.20pm and Episode 2 - 7pm on the 27th



Read an interview with Mackenzie about it here and here's a Radio Times article that includes a preview that features some of our music.
