The making of the music

The BBC is making another radio drama.  This time, it is not an adaptation of WD, but rather tells the story of how the music for the 1978 film came to be composed.

It will air Monday 26 March at 2:15.

Thank you for sharing this!  I'm listening to it right now, and it seems to be a radio drama of what went on. The whole Malcolm Williamson "too sick to finish" sounds definitely dramatized.  Cool to listen to, though I'm sure creative liberties were taken. :)

It's still available for 10 days :) I haven't listened to it yet, but I downloaded an offline copy, that I could possibly share after it expires on iPlayer.
