David Beckham is helping to make Sky Sports even better in this TV ad – by adding a the new Sky Sports 5 channel, with a free broadband offer. The soundtrack to the ad is also the soundtrack to one of the best and most famous football movies ever made. It’s the main theme from Escape To Victory (also known as Victory in the US), the 1981 John Huston film that starred Michael Caine, Sylvester Stallone, and a host of footballers including Bobby Moore and Pele. The theme was composed by Bill Conti and performed by the Hollywood Symphony Orchestra. There is a version of the theme by the Hollywood Symphony Orchestra available to download from iTunes. If you’d like the original soundtrack, it was released as a limited edition CD, still available, for a price, from Amazon.
