“Tonight, Andrew Collins shines the spotlight on two composers, starting with the Academy Award-winning Rachel Portman. Her Oscar-winning music for Emma features alongside nominated scores for The Cider House Rules and Chocolat. We’ll also hear some of Portman’s most recent projects, including Belle and Their Finest.

The second film composer to feature is John Barry, with the iconic scores for Born Free, The Lion in Winter, Out of Africa and Dances with Wolves among his rich legacy. Plus some of Barry’s contributions to the James Bond films, such as You Only Live Twice and Thunderball.”
