12. A homegrown genius
Malcolm Arnold started composing for films in 1947 and only stopped in 1970 with more than 100 scores under his belt, not to mention incidental music for radio, TV and theatre. Arnold described film work as ‘an immensely liberating experience, an invaluable asset to professionalism’ and said he always wrote the kind of music he would want to hear as a member of the audience.
