Mark Bradhsaw has provided a haunting and melancholic score for Jane Campion’s miniseries Top of the Lake, the first episode of which was recently broadcast on BBC2.

Campion’s darkly meditative work, her first to be filmed in New Zealand since The Piano, stars Peter Mullen, Holly Hunter and Elizabeth Moss in a complex, dark crime story. The series has received glowing praise in Australia and the first episode has been very well received here in the UK. It also has the honour of being the first television series to be screened at the Sundance Festival.

Top of the Lake is Mark’s second collaboration with Jane Campion following the equally well received Bright Star about the last three years in the life of the poet John Keats.
