I am desperate to get this work which was created by composer Martin Phipps. I will buy it at any price. The music is some of the most beautiful, haunting... I could go on. Does anyone know where I can get it?

Unfortunately the soundtrack was never released. :-( Crazy, isn't it!

I just watched the miniseries and I agree, it is one of the most beautiful scores I've experienced. It had me bawling 3 or 4 times...I am so disappointed that they are not releasing it! this is the second place I found a confirmation that it's not available.

It's a shame they didn't. I think the soundtrack is absolutely beautiful.

I was surfing the web and it looks like someone posted some of the soundtrack online (see link below) without the background noise. Nope this is useful for you.

Take care

Oh, my goodness, it's a great start...yes, hopefully BBC and whoever is in charge of producing the soundtracks will sell them again or start selling them. I play musical instruments and it would be nice to have the soundtrack and music and notes too. It's so great! Thank you!

Nope - no music there - except what's already out there - youtube type videos of sections of film.

Yeah! Found it and downloaded it - not at the site listed below - that is only the youtube videos of scenes - the audio files are on a site called - search for soundtrack north and south - got the whole thing - once you download, unstuff it, move it to Itunes and it will automatically install there. Love it!@

You can download the soundtrack here:

Thank you for the website! I'm afraid I'm not very tech savvy: can you please advise on how to "unstuff it" and get it into iTunes once it is downloaded (I have a Mac).

Hello Tressa,

Only after I wrote all this did I see that you noted you have a Mac. I'm a Windows user, so these instructions for "unstuffing it" will be geared that way. Sorry. Maybe this will help someone else -- so sorry.

I assume you've already downloaded the rar file. You need to get a program like jzip. If you don't have it, then by simply putting jzip into a Google search, the first result ( should have a sub-heading under the main result that says "Free Unzip Program." That's what you want. It is all you ever really need to get zip or rar files uncompressed.

Once you do this, the icon for your rar and zip files should change to a yellow folder with a silver circular frame around it. Once you have jzip installed and your North and South rar file looks like that, all you need to do is double click it the icon and it will bring up the jzip extraction window. Click *Extract* (noted along the top of the window, near the middle). It will show you a path for where the files will go (or ask you for one the first time, I forget). Regardless, if you want it to go into iTunes then it is easier if you direct the path to look something like this:
Music/iTunes/iTunes Media/Automatically Add to iTunes.

No matter the path, if you eventually drop all the files into the "Automatically Add to iTunes" folder then they'll be...well, they'll be automatically added to iTunes. ;)
In the future - if you ever have rar files with multiple parts, you need to download all the parts, but usually only open one of them (I always open the last part) to get the entire set of files. Learning that was a bit of a frustrating journey for me, which is why I note it here. Doesn't apply to the North & South files.
If you have any questions I'll be happy to try and help.

I figured it out for Mac but thanks just the same!

I've just re-watched this series and I am still astonished that the BBC never released the soundtrack. That music *almost* outshines the acting. Just gorgeous. Off to download what I can though . . .

Thank you so much for the step-by-step process to enjoy this wonderful soundtrack! I've truly been possessed by the mini-series and the soundtrack is gorgeously heart-wrenching! So in love! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I found a version of the soundtrack on Only a couple of the tracks have any "background words", and deleting them didn't affect the rest of the tracks - i.e., the soundtrack as a whole still fits smoothly together. I would say these have about 85 - 95% of the quality you'd expect from a properly formatted CD (very little hissing or background noise). I was able to save them into my iTunes, and they play just fine. Good luck!

Isn't it dishonest to download it without paying for it?

Miss Kitty, these people would love to buy the soundtrack if only the BBC would publish it. So what's dishonest about getting some tracks by download if that's the only source?
