Band of the Year 1972 Winning Performance Part 1 of 7 - Grimethorpe

Elgar Howarth, then an \'unknown\' in the band world, conducting the Grimethorpe to victory in the second annual Granada Television Band of the Year Contest. The first piece in the programme was his own \'Pel Mel\', written some ten days before the contest and designed to show off every aspect of the players\' talents. It caused a sensation - an unknown composer and conductor sweeping the brass band movement and breathing new life into the competition world.
