FILM FANFARE (1956/57) ABC television

a number of episodes of the very creaky tv show can be seen at

Film Fanfare - No 1 - British Pathé ([Only registered and activated users can see links])

As well as film reviews and interviews there's Muir Mathieson
conducting the studio orchestra.

Priceless!

here are some musical highlights taken from different shows

Splendid!

Arthur Bliss / Malcolm Arnold
********************************

Soundtrack from the Newsreel - Welcome the Queen (1954)

Played by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
conducted by Muir Mathieson

Arthur Bliss - Welcome the Queen March (1954)

The Welcome the Queen March was the fruit of his work as a Master of the Queen’s Musick,
a position he took very seriously. He wrote the march for the Pathé newsreel for the return of the
young Queen Elizabeth from a Commonwealth tour in 1954.

Malcolm Arnold scored a number of sequences throughout the newsreel as well as Bliss' March
being used throughout for the more ceremonial scenes.I'm not sure wether it's Malcolm Arnold or
Muir Mathieson or both that's responsible for interpolating the Bliss March throughout the 45 minute film.


For this 13 minute selection I've cut out everything where the sound effects drown out the music,
then cut back most of the repeated use of the Bliss march apart from the opening and closing sections.
Then cut out a bit of Arnold that is repeated fanfares and sections where the soundtrack had deteriorated.
Finally what was left was stitched together with fades, mixes, herbs and spices into something at least
listenable I hope.

Spot the St Trinians like Bondi beach music mates

Another great quality thread.
Many thanks akid2fart for this fine addition to your 20/30's thread.
Oddly enough your choice of name "akid2fart" goes in the face of the expertise and quality of your threads (humurously, I may add) and your interest in the golden age of music.
Again many thanks. Greatly appreciated.
