Advert: Waitrose – #HomeForChristmas
Music: Jóhann Jóhannsson – Cambridge, 1963 (The Theory of Everything)
This beautiful and classy Christmas TV ad from Waitrose follows the epic journey to Britain of a tiny robin, while a young girl waits for its annual arrival. Sure to appeal to fans of David Attenborough’s Planet Earth, the ad manages to avoid commercialism (other than a shot of a Waitrose mince pie), and is probably TV Ad Music’s favourite festive ad so far in 2016. The fittingly beautiful music is Cambridge, 1963 from Berlin composer Jóhann Jóhannsson soundtrack score for the 2014 Stephen Hawking biopic The Theory of Everything. It’s available to download on iTunes.
