Radio 2 Arts Programme Sheridan Morley profiles two film composers who also wrote for the concert hall. Miklos Rosza , whose credits included The Thief of Bagdad, Ben Hur , Quo Vadis, and El Cid and Bernard Herrmann , who did much work for Hitchcock and whose output included Citizen Kane, The Snows of Kilimanjaro, The Man in the Grey Flannel Suit and Psycho, were not only contemporaries but firm friends and in the front rank of the genre. The programme includes the voices of the composers themselves, including material never broadcast before, and the comments of John Amis.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
