Howard Goodall continues his mini-series celebrating Great Living Film Composers – and this week, he turns his attention to James Horner.  

All sorts of soundtracks from Horner's Hollywood blockbusters will feature, including TitanicBraveheart and Apollo 13.

Howard also promises to include a selection of scores from the start of Horner's career, as he takes a look at how this American composer - educated at London's Royal College of Music - became one of the most in-demand and financially successful film composers of all-time.
