This visualisation of Gustav Holst's orchestral masterpiece 'The Planets' and Colin Matthews' additional movement 'Pluto, the Renewer' features images which enhance the symbolic meaning attributed to each planet by the composer. Directed by Rhodri Huw, this audiovisual experience enthralled a massive TV audience with a blend of images filmed in many locations around the world (including New Mexico, Arizona and Scandinavia), computer graphics, animatronics and an atmospheric performance by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales.
