Chris Watson scores Anthony Asquith's Underground

Chris Watson has recorded a new score for Anthony Asquith's 1928 portrait of the London tube network, Underground. The film will be released as part of the BFI's DVD and Blu-ray series of rare and cult British films, Flipside.

As well as the Chris Watson score, the DVD and Blu-ray release of the film will contain Neil Brand's orchestral score, recorded live. Underground was originally restored and released by the BFI earlier this year, and is out on DVD and Blu-ray on 17 June.
