Finally, British filmmakers are understanding just what it takes to make fine and meaningful sporting documentaries of the nation’s two favourite sports (sorry Rugby) as James Erskine follows-up his excellent One Night In Turin documentary (the definite account of England’s 1990 World Cup) with From The Ashes – the re-telling of the England vs. Australia 1981 clash where Ian Botham became a hero.

If you haven’t heard of Hawk, you shouldn’t feel bad. Googling it doesn’t bring much up about the project, or its director, Mj McMahon. It is a 38-minute fantasy epic loosely based on Welsh folklore and tells the tale of a boy named Rowen, who is taken away from the civilized world, where his lessons in the wild begin. Yet when he shatters the balance of nature, Rowan discovers another world beneath our own. In that shadowy land of old gods and wild hunts, the divide between man and beast becomes uncertain and the fairy tales of childhood spring to life. With only the guidance of a hunting hawk, Rowan must make amends for his crime, and choose between what is real, and what is not.
The task of scoring this film fell to Stuart Hancock, an award-winning composer who has worked in film, television, commercials, theatre and written concert music. »
