Presented by MATT HOPPER. TRACK 1- JIM HICKS gives a musical clue to the identity of the person he is going to interview. Plays theme from 633 Squadron. It is, of course, RON GOODWIN who proves to be singularly modest when asked how he goes about writing a film score. Looks at the rough cut of film. Makes a few notes.
