Film As expected I sobbed through Saving Mr Banks tonight although I was constantly distracted by the familiarity of one of the themes, an insistent piano rhythm. It's in here from about thirty seconds in.
A whole hour I sat wracking my brain, then I realised:
The Newsroom - Season 2 Title Sequence
I'm afraid you'll have to click that, I can't find an embedible version.
None of this should be too much of a surprise - the soundtrack to Saving Mr Banks and the title music for The Newsroom were both composed by Thomas Newman.
And I'm not the only one to notice.
