    Default Trying to identify background music

    In 2010 BBC showed a documentary about Charles Darwin called "The End of God". I'm trying to identify the background music used in the first couple of minutes of the program. It sounds like a baroque oboe concerto but I can't locate it. I've attached audio of the first minute or so of the program.

    Can anyone help? Thanks.

    I did a quick search on:

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1809630/?ref_=fn_tt_tt_1

    Alas no info about the music.
    You can always e-mail the BBC with as much info that you have, answer guaranteed.

    I tried to figure out how to contact BBC, but despite having a contact FAQ, they don't actually tell you how to do it.

    yes, interesting music.
    I don't know who a composer is but a style is similar to Michael Nyman, minimalism.

    If you look through the list of questions about finding music, some people did that, so perhaps you can ask them
    I thought I had it in my mail list but not found it yet.

    I did wonder whether it was an actual baroque composer or a modern day piece done in baroque style. I have heard it in another documentary I saw recently also made in 2010 in the U.S., so it may have been composed around then.

    Most of the time it is composed for the documentary .
