The history of the background music may be of interest to those interested in the production of this film. I worked with Carl Davis on the music for this movie at his home in south London to rushes sent by ITV in 1980 as well as doing the final recording in the studio and he didn't give me any credit for my Indian musical input as Carl knew nothing about Indian Ragas. There was a lot of controversy and dispute over this issue and a great deal of acrimony which led to the film being aired only once . Shame really as it was a good film based on a good story with good actors. I also worked on the other Scott novel'The Jewel in The Crown' for which George Fenton did give me credits for my Indian musical input.
