'Dramatic' music in TV programmes

It may just be me getting older, but I'm getting really fed up with loud 'thumping' music in documentaries and other informational TV programs.  Almost everything on the Discovery or National Geographic channels is becoming a pain in the ears!  Anyone else noticed this?

A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Yes Bob, we are forever turning the volume up and down.   To loud one minute, bursting your ear drums the next.    You would think that wouldn't happen in this modern age would you.?

    I find that as my hearing has deteriorated, it is difficult to filter out the music or the canned laughter. I wish that the producers of film and tv could have more confidence in the content of their programmes and let the words and pictures speak for themselves.

    COMPARE DAVID ATTENBOROUGH'S "ZOO QUEST" DOCUMENTARIES FROM THE 1950S WITH HIS MOST RECENT OFFERING.

    HERE IS A BIT ABOUT KOMODO DRAGONS FOR COMPARISON.

    PANSY, APART FROM THE NOISE FACTOR, THAT'S WHAT ANNOYS ME TOO.

    I KNOW IF SOMETHING IS FUNNY OR SAD OR EXCITING. MUSIC IS NOT GOING TO CHANGE MY MIND.

    IF THE CHIPS ARE SOGGY, THE BEST KETCHUP IN THE WORLD WILL NOT PERSUADE ME THEY TASTE GOOD.

    My hearing is fine but yes, I've noticed this, too.  Plus the difference in volume between any programme and the advertisements....which are really loud in comparison.  Now we just mute the telly every time there's an ad break.

    Having watched Planet Earth II (which was amazing) I was annoyed by the very loud accompanying music.
    I later read that they had asked Hans Zimmer to write the music - must have cost a fortune, but WHY?

    If I want to listen to music I put the radio on.
    I wouldn't go so far as to say it ruined an excellent program, but it was overly loud and unnecessary
