Ron Goodwin's highest entry in this year's chart climbs one place

633 Squadron is a classic World War II film from 1964, directed by Walter Grauman. Goodwin's theme has become an incredibly popular piece for brass bands across the UK and remains one of British cinema's catchiest themes. This is gung-ho heroism and wartime bravery, set to a rhythm that echoes the squadron number.
