A first for Aberystwyth!

‘I’ve seen Blackmail many times but never like that – Neil Brand’s score was amazing, it picked out so many details that you might miss without the music being there, and it really brought the film to life.’Caught on Film, BBC Radio 4.

Lawrence of Arabia Overture
Main theme from The Sea Hawk
