Radiohead's guitarist, arranger and multi-instrumentalist Jonny Greenwood shares his musical milestones with Matt Everitt in a programme first broadcast in 2016.

In their thirty-year career, Radiohead are have shifted the parameters of what a rock band is capable, having continually pushed themselves in new musical directions.

Jonny Greenwood is a hugely respected and innovative composer in his own right, performing around the world with the BBC Concert, Australian Chamber and London Contemporary Orchestras, and has created award-winning film scores, including There Will Be Blood and The Master. He talks about the music that obsessed him growing up - from the Fall and New Order to classical composers such as Krzysztof Penderecki, who continues to have an impact on Jonny's work today. He also looks back to Radiohead's early days and how they coped with the huge success that followed 1997's OK Computer, as well as their creative processes in the studio.

Jonny also discusses his acclaimed film soundtracks, working with director Paul Thomas Anderson, how Radiohead missed out on doing a James Bond theme and the writing and recording of their album A Moon Shaped Pool.
