Can anyone tell me what the music in the background is at minutes 04:45-06:05ish in this BBC iPlayer broadcast please?

It's from the American Football show on Monday (25th Jan) night and sounds like it should be in a film trailer or score. Please help, it's driving me crazy!!

Thanks

Rich

I've just had a brainwave - the track is by Two Steps From Hell, and it's called "Freedom Fighters". It's used on the soundtrack of the recent Star Trek film. I knew I'd heard it recently!

This sort of epic orchestral stuff, particular trailer music, is difficult to come by, but you should check out the following albums, if you can find them:

I know what you mean, I *absolutely love* music like this, especially if it develops into a trance/dance piece.
If you liked that you might like the music that accompanies this footage of Thrust SSC
breaking the land speed record.

I'm not entirely sure, but from a quick listen it sounds a bit like some of the music written for the film Transformers : Revenge Of The Fallen, by Steve Jablonsky. It's worth checking out some of his tracks.

Thank you both for your ideas/recommendations. I've been through Steve Jablonsky's Transformers 1 & 2 as well as through the Avatar trailers. It sounds like something quite rare by Groove Addicts - Full Tilt called End Game (used in Japanese Avatar trailer apparently) but not quite the same. Surely BBC2 would use something fairly easy to identify..?

Aquariel I can't thank you enough!!!

I knew I'd heard it before somewhere but was really struggling to place it. I'll have a look for those albums as well, thanks for the tip.

Thank you thank you thank you thank you..!
