Gavin Holman deposited Film, Television and Video productions featuring brass bands on Humanities Commons 7 months, 2 weeks ago
Over the years the brass bands in the UK, and elsewhere, have appeared numerous times on screen, whether in feature films or on television programmes. In most cases they are small appearances fulfilling the role of a “local” band in the background or supporting a musical event in the plot of the drama. At other times band have a more central role in the production, featuring in a documentary or being a major part of the activity. This is a list of 450 such appearances, from 1931 to 2019.
