Welcome to Reel Britannia-a very British podcast about very British movies ...with just a hint of professionalism.

In the latest episode, Scott is joined by Steven to chat about a movie featuring fading communities, Thatcher and flugelhorns.

Join us we take a look at Brassed Off (1996)

“In existence for a hundred years, Grimley Colliery Brass band is as old as the mine. But the miners are now deciding whether to fight to keep the pit open, and the future for town and band looks bleak. Although the arrival of flugelhorn player Gloria injects some life into the players, and bandleader Danny continues to exhort them to continue in the national competition, frictions and pressures are all too evident. And whose side is Gloria actually on?”

“The truth is, I thought it mattered - I thought that music mattered. But does it bollocks? Not compared to how people matter.”
