    A celebration of the work, legacy and influence of legendary visual effects creator and filmmaker Ray Harryhausen (1920-2013). The podcast, now on its 28th episode, is part of The Ray & Diana Harryhausen Foundation, which Harryhausen set up in 1986 to ensure his body of work was preserved as a coherent collection, with educational rather than simply entertainment value. The first episode includes interview clips with Harryhausen himself; other episodes are devoted to specific films such as One Million Years BC (1966), Clash of the Titans (1981), Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger (1977) and 20 Million Miles to Earth (1957).
