Save it
This is the first ever film about the composerGustav Holst, who taught himself Sanskrit, lived in a street of brothels in Algiers, cycled into the Sahara Desert, distributed the Socialist Worker, hated the words used to his most famous tune I Vow to Thee My Country because it was the opposite of what he believed and whose music – especially The Planets – owed little or nothing to anyone. Introduced by the film's director Tony Palmer.
