Don Letts

Monday 16 September



As part of the BBC’s Sound Of Cinema season, film director Don Letts, presents a special programme featuring some of his favourite movie soundtrack moments, and shares some of his ideas about the role that music plays in film.

Grammy-winning Don has been directing films since 1978 when he made The Punk Rock Movie using footage of bands he'd gathered on a Super 8 camera. He went on to direct videos for The Clash, Bob Marley and others. He has also directed many TV documentaries on music and popular culture, as well as feature films including Dancehall Queen. In his band, Big Audio Dynamite, Don was a pioneer of sampling clips of film dialogue to enhance songs.

The BBC's Sound Of Cinema season is dedicated to the composers, songs and film scores that form the soundtrack to the big screen. The season features a major BBC Four series and programming across BBC Radio.
