Bill Baileys Remarkable Guide to the Orchestra

Just finished watching Bill Bailey’s Remarkable Guide to the Orchestra. Its classic Bill Bailey, with the addition of the BBC concert orchestra and rhythm section. Enjoy the cockney classics with full orchestral illustrations, details of key instruments, ‘insect nation‘ as you’ve never heard it before, Doctor Qui (with full rhythm section) and a master performance of Saint-Saen‘s Swan … using alpine cow-bells!

Excellent stuff. You have a few days left to see it on iPlayer (so don’t hang about)! Until someone posts it to YouTube of course …

Oh, and if you’re a trombone player, lookout for the performance of William Tell at the 25 minute mark! Pure, brilliant, Bill Bailey!
