Department alumnus Tom Service presents new documentaries for the BBC

Posted on 21 January 2016

Department alumnus Tom Service presents two new documentaries for the BBC.

Tom Service

In the first, Tom Service takes a journey through Russia on the trail of the melodies of Russian giant Sergei Rachmaninoff and celebrates the composer's musical triumph over critical adversity.  In the second, Amanda Vickery and Tom Service reveal an exceptional story of triumph of human spirit over unspeakable terror when, in August 1942, a concert took place in Leningrad that defies belief.

You can watch both documentaries now on BBC iPlayer:
