Footage from an unfinished film about composer Gustav Holst has come to light. It gives an interesting peak into his life and how others remember him, including his daughter, Imogen.

One of the interesting revelations is how the composer would walk from London to Cheltenham with a trombone on his back. It must have made an interesting sight.
