Just finished watching this on BBC4.

Really good overview of film scores, both historical and some nice insights to the process.

And the end credits are especially worth watching.

Shawshank Redemption - one of the best! There are very few Thomas Newman scores that haven’t had some holy cow moments for me. His Skyfall score had some brilliant moments too. The other composers in the program aren’t too shabby either.

Anything by Ennio Morricone - pure genius.

Just watched it - great insight. But what a shocking gender imbalance both by the industry AND the makers of this documentary.
Individual people interviewed in front of the camera:
male 58 \ female 5

Not to be a dick about it but why do people who wave the flag for gender imbalance, of which there definitely is, always stop at male/female ratios? What about those who are non-binary, trans-gendered or don’t identify?
