Before we forget to mention it: The JB memorial concert (RAH) is being broadcast on BBC radio 2 - Friday 1st July at 20:00 BST: Friday Night is Music Night. " Sir Michael Parkinson introduces a memorial concert to celebrate the life of composer John Barry, which was recorded at the Royal Albert Hall in June."
"... as well as tributes from Don Black, Sir Michael Caine, Timothy Dalton, Sir George Martin, and Sir Tim Rice." No, Sir Tim did not do a tribute.
Or listen (again for a whole week) online.

By the way the TV cameras in the hall were there only for the internal TV circuit shown on the large screen - or so said the main cameraman.
