Charlie Chaplin's 1936 film, 'Modern Times', is a biting but darkly funny critique of the dehumanising effects of industrialisation and the human cost of The Great Depression. 

Chaplin wrote his own music for his films and the score for Modern Times, which includes the hit popular song 'Smile', was restored for modern-day orchestral use and live orchestral screenings by Timothy Brock. It is performed live here by the Philharmonia under Carl Davis.
