Philharmonia Orchestra under Carl Davis accompanies a screening of 'Ben Hur' with Davis's new orchestral soundtrack.

(The 1925 silent film of Ben Hur was a blockbuster in its day for the newly merged MGM studios, and was the most expensive silent film ever made. Telling the story of Prince Judah Ben-Hur, who is enslaved by his friend and rival but returns to take his revenge, its centrepiece is a spectacular and thrilling chariot race featuring a dramatic real-life crash, which is still regarded as one of the most extraordinary sequences ever recorded on film.)
