About the Production

SCOTT OF THE ANTARCTIC is one of the finest British films of the 1940s. Starring Sir John Mills as the great explorer Captain Scott, the film tells the story of Scott’s doomed attempt in 1912 to be the first to reach the South Pole. Accompanying the action is the extraordinary music of Ralph Vaughan Williams, a landmark in British film music and best known to concert audiences as the basis for Vaughan Williams’s 7th Symphony ‘Sinfonia Antartica’.

Big Screen Live, in association with Studio Canal and Oxford University Press, are proud to present the World Premiere of Vaughan Williams’s original score played live in synch with the film, a hugely significant moment in the continued appreciation of the composer’s work as we approach the 150th anniversary of his birth in 2022.
