Many know me from my YouTube channel Matthew North Music. I started this firstly as just a platform for my music but in later 2020 I took it a bit more seriously and now produce content on a regular basis with my subscription count going up all the time. If you do not follow then take a look at

I located the tapes some years ago, but the story got traction after Scott passed away.

I am often used as a talking head on radio and television for various music related matters. Mostly in BBC local radio but often other stations as well.

Music for Television and Radio

I have recorded and composed music for various TV and Radio over the years incuding in 2008 the opening music for BBC One's 'The Estate We're In' Series 2 Episodes 3,4 & 5.

In 2006 I did the theme music to BBC South West's music sequence 'The White Labels' a forerunner to BBC Introducing. I have also contributed music to other shows such as BBC Children in Need.

I stepped away from doing TV music as I had many other projects on the go, though I intend to get back to it.


Television Film work

I have spent most of my life working in Television as a picture editor and news telelvision director though I have also worked on a number of other projects ranging from concert films and doccumentries to live events and promotional films.

Recently I worked on a film with TV Legend Fred Dianage that you can watch Here

  I also gave some help to the recent Blu ray release of the remasted 'Worzel Gummidge' TV Series.

I have directed and filmed a number of concert films for artists such as Wayne Hussey (The Mission), Arthur Brown, the rock band 'Skin' (2 DVDs) as well as many films for local musicians.

I have also worked as a camera operator on productions such as the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards TV coverage for several years and I was also credited for some audio restoration work for the TV series 'Born To Kill' for TwoFour productions that went out on Sky One and Channel 5 television in the UK.

I was also credited on the Sky arts programme 'Fairport Convention Folk Heroes'
