As my mind was opening to the world of classical music I sensed that the way the film made use of music, in particular the awesomely, eerie, Ligeti vocal works, was something more than just incidental.

On the surface of the moon, a dig uncovers a deliberately buried monolith that's identical to the one the man-apes found at the beginning of the film. Even the Dawn of Man sequences (which have proved challenging for other releases of the film) look remarkably realistic and ‘new’ thanks to the way the 4K Blu-ray’s extra brightness makes the bright skies and sun-drenched landscapes look far more vivid and natural. As a programmer there are still days when I walk into work and switch on my machine and mutter "Good morning Hal - Good morning Dave".

The delightful opening of the spacecraft accompanied by 'the Blue Danube' is just beautiful, delightful and of true art in cinema.The silence is punctuated by classical music, technical banter between the astronauts, the hums and rumbles of the ship, and HAL's soothing voice. You have to make an effort to engage your wider knowledge of recent history and don't expect to be passively entertained like a three-year-old. It’s a true must-watch classic of world cinema that deserves your time and appreciation, ideally on a big screen.
