Acclaimed director and writer Quentin Tarantino discusses the music from his movies with James King as his latest film, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood hits cinemas.

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is the ninth film from the double Oscar-winning director and writer Quentin Tarantino. His filmography started with Reservoir Dogs in the early 90s, followed soon after by Pulp Fiction. Since then he's made Jackie Brown, the revenge-fuelled two-parter Kill Bill, Death Proof, WWII drama Inglorious Basterds, Django Unchained and The Hateful Eight. His movies are consistently considered some of the greatest of all time, proving popular with critics and fans alike. His movies are known for his distinctive style, often inspired by scenes from his encyclopedic knowledge of cinema. He chooses the music from the films from his own extensive record collection, hand-selecting each track very carefully.

In this special, Tarantino talks movie critic James King through some tracks from his films. From listening to hours of the 60s radio station 93KHJ for Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, teaching Uma Thurman to do the twist for Pulp Fiction to convincing record label EMI to let him use Stealers Wheel for THAT scene in Reservoir Dogs.
