72. Patrick Doyle: Great Expectations
Charles Dickens was a great British author and Patrick Doyle is a great British composer. But this 1997 updated film version of the Dickens classic was in every other way American - Pip became Phin, and Miss Havisham, played by Anne Bancroft, was reinvented as Nora Dinsmore. Kiri te Kanawa and Miriam Stockley also feature on Doyle's inventive soundtrack. "I think it's wonderful," says Alan Titchmarsh.
