In the year of BAFTA's 60th anniversary, the BBC Concert Orchestra play extracts of music from some great British films of the last 60 years. The extracts are introduced by Richard E. Grant and Richard Attenborough. The program includes the first public performance of the ballet music from The Red Shoes (1948) performed from the original scores complete with the Ondes Martenot. Performed in the presence of the widow and family of Brian Easdale, composer of the music for The Red Shoes and many other films. As each piece was played, film clips, stills, posters etc. were shown on screens at either side of the stage. Written by
