Howard Goodall's Big Bangs was first aired on UK television a number of years ago, but the memory of the programme has stuck with me ever since. Goodall picks five of what he thinks are the greatest advancements in the history of music for example, the development of music notation, equal temperament, and he systematically explains their evolution and their impact on music as we know it. But what really sets this DVD apart is Goodall's ability to get potentially complex ideas across so lucidly and with humour and wit. It makes what could be a potentially stuffy subject, entertaining, engaging and....well buy and see for yourselves, you are unlikely to be disappointed.

Its a shame that this isn't available in Region 2 PAL for UK viewers-I assume it will be very soon, so unless you have the ability to watch region 1 NTSC wait for the UK version!

We strongly recommend this series to families and individuals who are curious about music's origins, developments and general influence in our lives. Thank you Mr. Goodall for such an informative and entertaining introduction to the world of music.
We can't wait for 'How Music Works' to become available, hurry!

Howard Goodall's insite into the development and history of music is great. It is just a pity that this is only available as a Region 1 DVD (OK if your DVD player is multi-region) and that his other programs are not generally available on DVD.

How many times do you wish you could get the music or sound track from programs? Well here, it is all the music from Howard Goodall's Big Bang's.

He made a great selection and it all fits the theme he is putting forward in the TV program of the purpose is to explore five turning-points in the history of western classical music, and his book "Big Bangs: Five Musical Revolutions." There are nineteen tracks in all.
