Natural World's Africa's Fishing Leopards - musicians find each other on Twitter

23 February 2015

William Goodchild's latest score for BBC Natural World, co-written with Dan Brown features the vocals of Senegalese singer, Batch Gueye. (pictured)

"We knew very early on that we wanted a solo African voice to represent the spirit of Africa and to symbolise the mother leopard who is the subject of this remarkable film. After searching high and low, a contact on Twitter directed me to Batch Gueye, a Senegalese singer based in Bristol, who was headlining at the WOMAD festival. One phone call later and Batch was on board. Listen out for Batch in the unique and remarkable sequence where the leopards slowly realise that the shape shifters they see in the mud are catfish, and catfish can be hunted..."

Africa's Fishing Leopards, narrated by Sir David Attenborough, goes out for the first time on BBC2 at 8 pm on Tuesday 24th February. It is Pick of the Day, Radio Times.
