Hans Zimmer on his first live tour and the fear of composing

German-born composer Hans Zimmer has created the soundtracks for more than 100 Hollywood films, including Gladiator, Pirates of the Caribbean and Inception.

He is now embarking on a tour of 30 European cities, starting in the UK, playing his most famous pieces of music.

Rebecca Jones spoke to the award-winning film composer about his first live tour, music drowning out the dialogue in films and composing the theme tune for the 1980's quiz show Going For Gold.
