Discovery Channel / wilderness, shows, i.e., the last alaskans etc.
I love virtually all discovery shows. I am writing, I hope, to represent a personal concern that may affect many people. I am appalled at the persistent and high level of background music attached to many discovery channel shows, particularly the last alaskans. A good example is the episode "winter's edge". The stories of the people living there have plenty of drama, history, innovation, personal despair, difficulty and danger, without the need for way too loud and persistent violins, woodwinds and tekno cacophony. Please consider asking producers of shows to concentrate on story programming (Which they do very well) and to avoid attempting to "pump up the drama" with absolutely unnecessary music which simply comes across as noise and masks the generally quiet soliloquy and dialogue that are perfectly informative and instructive by themselves. These shows are at their best when they are about the simple eloquence of the people themselves, the landscapes, the hardships, the beauty and the beasts. We can't hear them half of the time, simply beacause of the overwhelming background music!! Thank you for your consideration. Wayne beachley
