There's also a podcast of the programme listed here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p02nrw7k/episodes/downloads

The interview in the podcast is about 36 minutes long starting after about 1 minute so right at the beginning. There's just snippets of music, so mainly talking.

Yes, excellent. Good to hear a lot of under-discussed stuff on display (the giallo movies etc). Wossy went in a bit aprehensive, knowing that the Maestro does not suffer fools gladly, but old Ennio was utterly charming (what we heard of him - I suppose it was necessary to edit out the longer answers in Italian).

One little question about interviewing techniques... It used to be the norm (I think) to ask the questions directly to the interviewee, even if they didn't understand the language, and the translator would then do the asking. I found Wossy's approach a little odd at first, speaking directly to the translator/ interpreter - "Could you ask him if...?" Is that standard nowadays?

Anyway, greatly enjoyed the show, the music, and the Maestro. Bravo!

Could anyone please tell me the title of the Bruno Nicolai music ,it was mentioned but I didn't quite catch it ?
Great interview and some very intelligent questions from Ross.

Ross is a film music fan. He did the liner notes for the John Barry compilation Themeology.

Had no idea Ross was this big a film music fan, very informative interview and I love how it's edited together with the music flowing throughout. Any Bruno Nicolai question does result in Morricone giving the obligatory answer putting the "who got credited for what" rumours to rest. Great to hear the Lenzi & Fulci scores mentioned. I recently discovered Spasmo on blu-ray and it's another impressive Morricone score. Still so much to experience!

I saw Ross at the Barry concert at the Royal Albert Hall in 1998 and also Morricone at the Barbican in (I think) 2001. Definitely a big film music fan.

Wow - that was awesome! The stuff about Gruppo di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza was definitely an exclusive! Thanks for posting, I never would have seen that. If I only I could speak Italian!

Just listened to that interview and found it to be a great listen, Ross clearly knows his stuff, he seems like a genuine fan too, and Morricone far more open and relaxed than normal, while the selection of music [and not all of them film music] was well chosen and edited in to the interview. Thanks so much for posting.

Makes me sad I can't make Blenheim Palace. At least I saw the Maestro some years ago at the Royal Albert Hall.

This has been great fun. Especially hearing the Maestro performing some of his "sounds" and him being in a good and cheerful mood.

Yes, Ross takes a lot of flak for the light nature of his interview techniques, but his great gift is to make people feel entirely at home, and they do loosen up, even through an interpreter it seems.

The BBC top slot interviewer post went from Parkinson to Wogan to Aspel to Ross to Graham Norton, and if you take a sliding scale of 'seriousness', then it declines from Parkinson with each new replacement. Ross however, for all his frivolity, could be, on occasion, especially in dealing with humanitarian or charity stuff quite 'serious' if he chose and the gravitas graph goes up slightly during his tenure. Not so with Apel or Norton.

It's good to see a genuinely clued up interviewer, and it doesn't have to sacrifice fun. Also, Ross is a buff of every kind of cinema, including European, and presented the Beeb's main film show for years.

I finally got to watch this. THIS is the best interview I have heard about Morricone. AND ranks in the top ten interviews of any composer. Too many interviews come from a way to generic point of view, usually centered on a composer's most famous scores, which are not necessarily always his best. As soon as SPASMO and WOMAN IN A LIZARD'S SKIN were mentioned I knew we were with a fan. And, as Morricone said, his questions were intelligent and not at all boring for him. He has become quite impatient with some lazy and not thought out questions. The compliments he gives Jonathan are well deserved.

One of Ennio's final statements said it all. If you have a clear idea in mind for the film score it can be quite easy but if you do not, it can be quite challenging. So many composers do not and the many very talented ones who do are not allowed to implement them.
