Spielberg is a 'remarkable' man says War Horse songwriter

Help

A Derbyshire songwriter has been sharing his experiences of working with Steven Spielberg, the director of War Horse.

John Tams, 62, wrote the music to the original theatre production and has worked on the film alongside composer John Williams.

The War Horse novel by Michael Morpurgo was first published in 1982. The book was adapted for the stage in 2007.

Mr Tams, who is from Heage, said he did not realise how successful the play would be.
