The miracle of creation.

by Andrew MacGregor

BBC Scotland: “Beginning” - 2 mins 41s

The new BBC Scotland channel sets out its stall with this collaboration between synth-pop trio Chvrches and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. Flanked by musicians and blue-tinged screens, lead singer Lauren Mayberry delivers a classical rendition of the band's 2018 track, ‘Miracle'.

Shot by promo director Oscar Sansom, the channel's opening salvo is replete with arty aerial shots, a diverse smattering of Scots, and enough audio bombast to complement the occasion. The jury may out on the rest of the channel's output, but this tasteful remix suggests music fans may have something to chew over.

Music: Miracle - Chvrches
