Yes, he doesn't seem to like Brosnan's films much, does he? Says he can actually believe this Bond is capable of the things we see him do and that it's nice to have a section of a Bond film where there's not something blowing up every two minutes. Danger.. danger- incoming!

Odd that he wasn't asked about the Bond theme itself- I'm sure listeners would have been a little confused not to hear it in a feature about the Bond composer.

I like his attitude to using contemporary material too- quite right. Seems funny he didn't mention how fashionable Barry's stuff was when he started; by the example he gives of DAF I think the Bond sound was fading slightly probably because of its anachronistic qualities.
