Rave Reviews Greet Reef's Leningrad Film


Reef Television’s latest landmark music film, Leningrad and the Orchestra That Defied Hitler, premiered on BBC Two on Saturday 2 January 2016 to universal critical acclaim.  The 90 minute film was Pick of the Day in virtually every British daily and Sunday newspaper, the Daily Mail calling it “astonishing”, the Daily Telegraph and Guardian both describing it as “terrific” and the Radio Times calling it “an astonishing story of art used as an instrument of war”.  The film also was the subject of prominent feature articles commissioned specially by the Guardian, the Times, Daily Telegraph and Radio Times, and presenters Amanda Vickery and Tom Service appeared to discuss it on Radio 4’s Start the Week and Radio 3’s In Tune.  The social media response from viewers of the film was unprecedented, and one letter published in the Radio Times read as follows:  “THE POWER OF MUSIC  - Once in a while there comes along a programme of such quality, so deeply moving and respectfully made, that alone it commands an entire year’s licence fee.”
