In the second show dedicated to the Academy Awards, Andrew Collins explores the ‘Best Director’ winners and nominees from across the decades, with particular interest on their partnerships with the films’ composers.

Such collaborations include Peter Jackson and Howard Shore’s winning work on The Lord of the Rings trilogy, the much-garlanded partnership of Steven Spielberg and John Williams, and the winning combination of David Lean and Maurice Jarre.
