Music from the Orange advert

In case you don’t know, the music from the current Orange advert (the one with the couple dancing) is Track 1 from Brian Eno’s Ambient 1: Music for Airports. Always loved it, ever since I heard it as an accompaniment to an Open University programme on non-Euclidean geometry.

Oh dear, I’ve said too much.

    I’m Rob Buckley, a journalist who writes for UK media magazines that most people have never heard of although you might have heard me on the podcast Lockdown Land or Radio 5 Live’s Saturday Edition or Afternoon Edition. I’ve edited Dreamwatch, Sprocket and Cambridge Film Festival Daily; been technical editor for TV producers magazine Televisual; reviewed films for the short-lived newspaper Cambridge Insider; written features for the even shorter-lived newspaper Soho Independent; and was regularly sarcastic about television on the blink-and-you-missed-it “web site for urban hedonists” The Tribe. Since going freelance, I've contributed to the likes of Broadcast, Total Content + Media, Action TV, Off The Telly, Action Network, TV Scoop and The Custard TV.
