Theme music

Paul Farrer wrote all the music. It's played live in the studio by a string quartet (Sarah Chapman, Catriona Parker, Hayley Pomfrett, Llinos Richards) and conducted by Farrer to match the player's heartbeat.


Paul Farrer. There's a "developed by" credit - Simon Adsett, Ed Daggett, Juliet Denison, Ed Egan, Emma Hammill.


The first game show in forever to carry a credit for "Heartrate Technology" (Hidalgo supply the equipment, if you want to play at home.)
