The World's Greatest Music
Find out the fascinating stories behind some of the favourite film scores from the 80s, including classics such as John William's E.T., Ennio Morricone's The Mission and Mozart's Amadeus.
A celebration both of childhood and the medium of film, Giuseppe Tornatore's 1988 drama Cinema Paradiso has become one of the most cherished slices of world cinema in recent years. In keeping with the film's study of a relationship between a child and a father-figure, Ennio Moricone collaborated with his son Andrea for the film's score. The two originally first wrote music together for a series of Italian crime dramas called Ultimo, before their work on Cinema Paradiso won them a BAFTA.
