From the Library: Movie Magic — featuring the music of John Barry

in Daily Programme

by Elrik Merlin on Saturday, 4 December, 2010

Today on Radio Riel we present a programme of great themes from the movies and from television, and in particular featuring the work of John Barry, perhaps best-known for his James Bond music but also for Out of Africa, Dancing with Wolves, Somewhere in Time and many more evocative pieces — not only for film but also for British television in days gone by.

Then at 11am and 7pm Pacific (19:00 and 03:00 GMT) we’ll be starting two exciting new adventure serials in The ZBS Radio Hour: at the top of the hour, it’s another Jack Flanders adventure: Dreams of Rio; followed half an hour later by Ruby 4 Part I: The Moons of Sonto Lore. Tune in!

Today’s programme is presented by Elrik Merlin and produced by Radio Riel in conjunction with our friends at the Alexandrian Free Library Consortium of Second Life. You can listen to the programme in-world now at, or simply click here to start your player, if your browser is configured to do so.
