In the first of a two part interview, film director Mike Newell talks to Tommy Pearson about his first experiences of music as a boy chorister, using music in his early Granada TV projects in the 1960s and working in movies with composers like Richard Hartley (The Awakening, Dance with a Stranger), Elmer Bernstein (Amazing Grace & Chuck) and Patrick Doyle (Into the West, Donnie Brasco, Harry Potter & the Goblet of Fire). Newell also talks more generally about collaborating with composers, getting to like the themes they bring him, how to avoid throwing out a score and how much he loves scoring sessions.

In Part Two, Mike Newell describes working on Four Weddings and a Funeral and with composers Anne Dudley (Pushing Tin) and Rachel Portman (Mona Lisa Smile). Newell also talks about his latest movie, Love in the Time of Cholera. 'I've never been approached by so many prominent composers to write music for a film', Newell says, 'but I didn't want a northern hemisphere take on it.' Newell tells us about the movie and its score by the Brazilian film composer, Antonio Pinto. [Length : 17 mins 34 secs / Recorded : Nov 2007]
