    14. Clemency Burton-Hill: Author, Broadcaster and Musician

    In another themed episode, Antonia explores the world of movie scores and soundtracks with broadcaster, novelist and classical musician, Clemency Burton-Hill as she recounts her favourite memories from the world of film music.

    Clemency is a strong believer that classical music is not an elitist past time, and should be accessible for all - and that film scores are a fantastic way of bridging the gap. She has faced backlash in the past for her views, but Clemency stands strong to her inclusive beliefs.

The podcast that’s not just for film buffs

If like me, you’re passionate about not just film, but people, this podcast is for you. Antonia’s fun, relaxed intelligent interview style gets her guests to open up. I love hearing how her guests have been influenced by their favourite films and in some cases how it has had a profound effect on them. I look forward to this podcast every week. More please Admit One. SVP x

Hidden Gem

This podcast is a total hidden gem and has opened my eyes and ears up to a wide range of films I hadn't ever seen or apprenticed

canon-anon ,

Such a neat podcast!

Great concept! Who doesn't have a favourite film that they wannna share with the world and talk about?! So interesting hearing why people enjoy the films they do. Antonia is a natural host and the guests involved pick such personal-to-them films. The guests are from many different professions & walks of life which adds to the listening! Addictive stuff!
