Sound Of Cinema - 225. Robin Hood

SOUND OF CINEMA - 225. ROBIN HOOD (320kbs-m4a/135mb/59mins)
BBC Radio 3 broadcast: 24th November 2018

Cinema's consistent love affair with the Robin Hood legend spawns a new film this week, "Robin Hood", starring Taron Egerton in the title role and with music by Joseph Trapanese - another take on the timeless myth of the man who took from the rich to give to the poor. Matthew Sweet examines Robin Hood's screen history and looks at how screen composers have portayed the legend in music.

With music by John Barry, Geoffrey Burgon, Dorothy Carwithen and Korngold's Oscar winning score to the 1938 Errol Flynn classic.
