Malcolm Arnold - A Story of Survival
This documentary celebrates Malcolm Arnold, one of Britain's most underestimated and yet most popular composers, who wrote scores to altogether 132 films including 'Whistle Down the Wind', 'Hobson's Choice' and the Oscar winning 'Bridge Over the River Kwai'.
Sir Malcolm also composed ballets, symphonies and operas. The film features interviews with friends and family, and includes extracts from his works, however, it does not shirk the darker side of Arnold's life full of complications caused by mental illness.
We are delighted to welcome Tony Palmer to introduce his documentary
