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.
