Keep hearing a piece of classical music on TV in so many shows and have never been able to identify it. Please can someone help?
When I say I ve heard this piece in many shows, I mean loads... Great British Railway Journeys, Great Canal Journey s, Secret Britain, Walks with Julia Bradbury, Antiques shows, yep there must be close to 20 and shazam or similar apps have always failed to trace it. I ve heard it in both major and minor key as well. I thought I had a break through when I discovered it was the theme tune to Penelope Keith s Hidden Villages but I still can t find out what it s called or who it s by. It sounds like it should be by someone like Keith Kenniff but I ve looked there with no success either. :( Any help to identify it would be greatly appreciated. You can hear it at the beginning of this video:

I must admit I've always thought of that as 'generic BBC background music'. It does show up everywhere and I don't see it credited. It reminds me a little of Penelope Keith's old program 'To the Manor Born'. Sorry that's no help, but thanks for the post.

You haven't heard "A" piece of classical music you have heard many pieces of music.
For example, the Music for Great British Railway journeys was specifically written for the program and is heard nowhere else.

Instead of looking for particular piece, why not try to find the genre so you can enjoy music like it? It sounds a bit like new age music or movie soundtrack music.

It isn't classical, just soundtrack music. It's the same thing over and over, with little development and no key movement.
