Sound of Cinema: Terence Stamp

2 hours
First broadcast:
Saturday 28 September 2013

The iconic English actor Terence Stamp was introduced to classical music during the 1960s by his friend Michael Caine. But his musical influences stem from his East End childhood, films that he saw and an early trip with his aunt to see Bizet's Carmen at Sadlers Wells. The result is that he is a passionate lover of classical music. In this special "Sound of Cinema" edition of Saturday Classics he presents two hours of his favourite music including works by the film composer Alfred Newman, by Delibes, Borodin, Rodrigo. Dick Barton makes an appearance, as do Jimi Hendrix and KD Lang, all linked one way or another, to Terence Stamp's distinguished life and career.
