It has just been revealed that the independent British film, ‘Pride’ has been voted the number 1 film of the year by BBC Radio 5 Live’s popular film duo of Mark Kermode and Simon Mayo on their ‘wittertainment’ review of 2014.
The top 10 included ‘Paddington’, ‘Godzilla’ and ‘Interstellar’, amongst others, but it was the story of the real troubles and comic misunderstandings of the friendship and support that emerges between a small Welsh community and the founders of the London based Gay and Lesbian Support group at the height of the 1984 Miners Strike that won the day.
Brass band soundtrack
The film features a significant brass band soundtrack written by composer Chris Nightingale and played by Tredegar Band conducted by Ian Porthouse (above).
