Eric De Cordova (Director and Producer, Driver Digital)
"Exceptional! Love how you opened with a fun rollicking cinema theme and then gradually brought in darker notes as the Diesels are seen. The "industrial" elements were very well done as well and a great new sound for us." - Season 28, Return Of Diesel (18.05.2017)
"Thank you Richard! Matt and I adored this. You took us on quite the journey it was lovely seeing your light and fun stuff only be followed by such a riveting and exciting danger theme!" - Season 29, Thomas & Super Station (21.08.2017)
