Jeremy Soule is a BAFTA winning composer with over 60 credits to his name. If you’re not familiar with his name, you’ll be familiar with his music. Jeremy’s scoring credits include The Elder Scrolls Oblivion and Skyrim, Guild Wars, the Harry Potter games, and many more. What you might not be familiar with is The Northerner Symphony, a Kickstarter project Jeremy launched in March 2013. Composing a symphony is no easy task, but Jeremy said the project would be completed in September 2013.

So those are the weeks when we do Amazing Fish Facts! You just haven’t got your head around how big a whale shark is. So don’t just let this wash over you: on the internationally recognised scale for big things, bus length, whale sharks measure one bus long. Picture it! PICTURE THE BUS, STEVE.
