    Six programmes

    (3) The Pipe, the Drum & the Thunder Run (Music & War)

    Jowi Taylor surveys the entwined histories of war and music. Military music is meant to stir the blood. In order to achieve this, some instruments, some compositions, some sounds are more favoured than others. The Israelites used trumpets to bring down the walls of Jericho. Coppola's Apocalypse Now helicopters played Ride of the Valkyries, which was based on an actual practice used during the Vietnam War, and is used today as part of the "Thunder Run" strategy in Iraq and Afghanistan. The Scots went to war with bagpipes. Every army has a band. And music can also be an instrument of torture, as happens today, when the US Army uses music to "forcibly interrogate" its prisoners. From pipes, to drums, to thunder runs, Taylor takes a serious look at the dark side of music (CBC)
