Meeting No. 30 – The Movies

Barry Norman, the cinema critic on the television programme 'Film 92'.

We had a meeting on the theme of music from films (“and why not”) which Roger and John M had to pull out of at the last minute. Roger did manage to give us his track list, so was there in spirit. Great cheese accompanied what was to be one of the most tune filled evening…..film music is often very short….We started and finished with versions of the music that graced Barry Normans review show ‘Film (place a year here)’ for all those years…..
