Chapter 02: Passion for Life

Previous: Chapter 01: My First Adventure ~ Next: Chapter 03: The Perils of Cupid

This chapter was originally two separate episodes.

British East Africa, 1909

This episode's score by Laurence Rosenthal is represented by 6 tracks (nearly 18 minutes of music) on the Volume 2 soundtrack.


20. African Port (1:07)21. Two New Friends (3:27)22. Meto (3:05)23. The Masai Elders (1:47)24. Talking With Teddy (2:53)25. Discovery Of The Oryx / Sacrifice (5:25)

The track "African Port" is not featured anywhere on the DVD version since it was part of a deleted scene that was only included in the original TV broadcast.

Paris, 1908

None of this episode's original score by Joel McNeely has been released. About a minute of music is available from the DVD documentary credits and TV credits.

According to Frederic Talgorn, he was responsible for composing the score for this episode after McNeely was originally assigned to score it. The episode was scored by Talgorn based on spotting session notes from McNeely, but the results were not used. This explains why some of the music for this segment is reused from Paris, 1916 and why David Slonaker is also credited for composing some of the final cues for McNeely.
