Who was the real composer behind Johann Sebastian Bach’s works? Was it just him or did his wife, Anna Magdalena, have something to do with it? This documentary reveals an international conspiracy, applying modern forensics to one of the most controversial cases in the history of music.

In the past quarter Century, masterpieces, previously thought penned by Johann Sebastian Bach, have long since been re-attributed to other composers, barely causing a ripple in the placid waters within the classical music landscape. That is until Professor Martin Jarvis dares to suggest that evidence exists advocating the great maes- tro's second wife, Anna Magdalena, as a serious contender for recognition. The reaction of the Bach Orthodoxy is swift and fierce - access to key archive material is denied. "Written by Mrs Bach" is a science-based investigative documentary, using emerging technology and forensic techniques to investigate one of the most fascinating mysteries in music history. His sensational findings have already attracted an outbreak of global contention in both the press and the social media.
