Jan 26, 2018, 03:36 PM

Edith's latest episode of Soundtracking in partnership with the EE BAFTAs is with a man who's won a fair few in his time: the one and only Nick Park.

As well as national treasures Wallace and Gromit, he and Aardman Animations have also brought us Creature Comforts, Shaun The Sheep, Chicken Run and now full-length feature Early Man.

Starring Eddie Redmayne, Masie Williams, Tom Hiddlestone and Timothy Spall among many other great actors, Early Man is a prehistoric underdog yarn fizzing with all the wit and charm we so associate with Nick's previous offerings. The score arrives courtesy of Harry Gregson-Williams and Tom Howe, and there are also contemporary source cues by Kaiser Chiefs, New Hope Club and The Vamps.

Don't forget, we're also encouraging you to vote for the EE Rising Star award at the 2018 BAFTAs, so head to ee.co.uk/bafta to do just that ...
