The Name's Barry ... John Barry - Programme 1

From The Sunday Feature, 2:00 pm on 30 November 2003

In 1962 the distinctive James Bond Theme first twanged forth from the silver screen.

In the first of two programmes surveying John Barry's music for the Bond movies, James Gardner, a closet Barry fan since 1967, looks at the classic sixties soundtracks (Dr No, From Russia With Love, Goldfinger, and Thunderball) and their evolution. And asks just who did write that Bond theme..?

These programmes were produced and first broadcast in 2003 and so don't acknowledge that John Barry died in 2011.
