A piece of film or TV music that I really love is…
“My favourite film would have to be Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and not even purely for the music. My favourite piece in the film would have to be ‘Christmas at Hogwarts’ because as soon as you hear the flute motif it brings me straight to seeing Hagrid pulling the Christmas tree and feeling as excited and festive as Harry and his friends feel (makes me feel more festive than the classic Christmas songs if I’m being honest).”
