Hans Zimmer and Joe Walker ACE Long time friends and collaborators, Hans Zimmer and Joe Walker ACE have had the pleasure of working together on five feature films. Their first was Steve McQueen's 12 Years A Slave, followed up by Dune director Denis Villeneuve's Blade Runner 2049. After that came Widows (again with McQueen), Dune and their upcoming film, The Unforgivable. Feature films aside, their relationship dates back even much further than that. Both creative talents were part of a BBC TV series called First Born in 1988. And while Hans filled the roll he's become most known for by scoring three episodes of the series, twice Oscar®-nominated film editor Joe Walker actually contributed as a sound editor and not a picture editor for First Born. In fact, musically trained Walker began his career as a sound editor before switching to cutting picture. HANS ZIMMER The work of legendary composer Hans Zimmer is notable for integrating electronic music sounds with traditional orchestral arrangements. Since the 1980's, Zimmer has composed music for over 150 films. His works include The Lion King (for which he won the Academy Award for Best Original Score in 1995), Crimson Tide, Gladiator, the Pirates of the Caribbean series, The Dark Knight Trilogy, Inception, Interstellar, Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 and Dune. In addition to his Academy award, he has received four Grammy Awards, three Classical BRIT Awards and two Golden Globes. He was also named to the list of Top 100 Living Geniuses, published by The Daily Telegraph. JOE WALKER ACE Formally trained in music and with a career that began as a sound editor, Joe's decision to pursue a life as a picture editor clearly paid off as he is one of the most celebrated feature film editors working today; having been nominated for an Oscar® for his work on the films 12 Years a Slave and The Arrival. Those films also notched Joe two of this three BAFTA nominations, with the third being for Blade Runner 2049. The Details In our discussion with the dynamic "DUNE" duo of Hans Zimmer and Joe Walker ACE we talk about: How Hans's early film scores messed with the monitors Creating "the voice" The horizontal and vertical editing Joe Walker does within the frame Building a better bagpipe The brief and inauspicious careers of Hans Zimmer, film editor and Joe Walker, sound editor The Credits Get your free 100GB of media transfer at MASV Visit ExtremeMusic for all your production audio needs Check out the free trial of Media Composer | Ultimate Watch this Rough Cut episode on YouTube Listen to the interview with Hans Zimmer that inspired this new one with Joe Walker ACE.

Manchester United earned a point at Stamford Bridge but what's next for Ralf Rangnick and Ronaldo? Jeanette Kwakye is joined by former Brighton striker Glenn Murray, the Daily Telegraph's Luke Edwards and 90 min's Ben Haines to discuss whether Cristiano Ronaldo should have been left on the bench at Stamford Bridge.

With the latest on the row over standards in public life – and the activities of MPs in particular. Is there a reason why there are more men in the line of fire than women? We hear from former Conservative MP Anna Soubry and Dr Hannah White, Deputy Director at the Institute for Government. 'Whatever Happened to Tradition?' is a book by Daily Telegraph journalist Tim Stanley. He argues that the Western tradition is anti-tradition, that we have a dangerous habit of discarding old ways and old knowledge. Sometimes, he argues, we used to do things better and we ignore this at our peril. Emma talks to Tim about his views on family, feminism, culture, sexuality, gender relations and more. When you look back over your relationships do you see patterns? Today the story of a woman we are calling Katy who feels that her earliest experiences shaped what she looked for and needed from her partners. During World War Two, hundreds of women served as agents in the Special Operations Executive, a branch of military intelligence which specialised in espionage and sabotage behind enemy lines. We're joined by history teacher Shalina Patel to tell their remarkable stories, and to look at how they are commemorated today.

Allan and Darren cannot resist focusing on the escalated and seemingly personal spat between Australian PM Scott Morrison and French President Emmanuel Macron over Australia's cancellation of the French submarine contract, then followed by the launch of AUKUS. During Morrison's recent international trip, Macron called him a liar, to which the Australian side responded by leaking details of private text messages the French president had sent the PM just days prior to the announcement. In Morrison's words: “claims were made, claims were refuted”. Who is in the right/wrong here? Stepping back, what is the role of honesty and integrity, or truth and trust, in international diplomacy? How much does it matter? Along the way, Darren finds the temptation to develop a potted academic theory of a “Morrison doctrine” too strong to pass up. Let the debate begin! We thank Mitchell McIntosh for audio editing and Rory Stenning for composing our theme music.

San Francisco's city government has been described as dysfunctional by the influential news magazine, The Economist. And other global newspapers like The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Daily Telegraph and The Daily Mail, regularly highlight our many travails like homelessness, City Hall corruption, rampant crime, inept school governance and stratospheric housing prices. Yet our civic leadership seems incapable or unwilling to fix them.

Tim Stanley is a historian, author and leader writer for the Daily Telegraph. The modern world has given us a lot. Safety and warmth, lighting at night, medicine, new age religions, Deliveroo and OnlyFans, but a lot of people feel unhappy with the life that modernity has handed them and are pulled toward a different style of living, one where they embrace values of the past rather than the future. Expect to learn why The West is as war with its own history, how Notre Dam nearly became a swimming pool, why Liberalism is the primary villain, why conservatives are terrible at conserving things, how men's roles in society have been eroded, why all revolutions look the same and much more.

A priori, l'hôtel Florida, à Madrid, était un hôtel de luxe assez semblable aux autres. Mais, durant la guerre civile espagnole, il servit de lieu d'hébergement aux intellectuels antifascistes, souvent venus de l'étranger, et aux correspondants de guerre. D'où sa célébrité.Un hôtel de prestigeInauguré en février 1924, l'hôtel Florida s'élevait en plein centre de Madrid, non loin de la Gran Via, l'une des artères principales de la ville, dont le tracé n'était pas complètement achevé.Son architecte, à qui l'on doit de nombreuses constructions madrilènes, n'avait pas lésiné sur le marbre qui ornait la façade.En effet, l'hôtel avait tout d'un palace. Ses 200 chambres étaient, pour l'époque, à la pointe du confort. Chacune disposait d'une salle de bain, de toilettes et du téléphone. Et l'hôtel était doté du chauffage central.Cet hôtel prestigieux fut rasé en 1964. Sur son emplacement, on construisit des grands magasins.Le lieu de rendez-vous des intellectuels antifascistesLes journalistes qui couvraient la guerre civile espagnole, qui dure de 1936 à 1939, avaient coutume de descendre à l'hôtel Florida. On y trouvait aussi bien le correspondant de la "Pravda", l'organe du parti communiste soviétique, ou de journaux anglais ou américains, comme le "New York Times" ou le "Daily Telegraph".Dans les couloirs, ils croisaient des intellectuels aux sympathies antifascistes, qui se donnaient eux aussi rendez-vous à l'hôtel madrilène.On y trouvait ainsi Ernest Hemingway, qui venait là en compagnie de Martha Gellhorn, sa maîtresse et future épouse, journaliste elle aussi. Dans une nouvelle écrite à l'hôtel Florida, l'écrivain décrit le fracas des bombardements qui, à intervalles réguliers, secouaient la ville.André Malraux fréquentait aussi l'hôtel. Entre autres raisons, il était venu en Espagne pour former, avec des volontaires internationaux, la fameuse escadrille Espana, qui prit sa part dans les luttes de la guerre civile.Animé par ses convictions de gauche, George Orwell, l'auteur de "1984" ne venait pas seulement en Espagne pour écrire des articles. Les armes à la main, il participait aux combats, logeant de temps à autre, lui aussi, à l'hôtel Florida. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

BMW unveiled its redesigned MINI for the first time on 15th September, 1997; the eve of the Frankfurt Motor Show. Its predecessor had been in production for 41 years.Reborn as a ‘city' car, rather than a micro compact, and with Union flags painted on its roof, this was the moment the iconic brand became seen as cheeky, sporty and British - but not, actually, especially small. In this episode, Arion, Rebecca and Olly explain how the MINI has its roots in the Suez Crisis; ask why the similar VW Beetle reboot was discontinued in 2019; and reveal how many people can officially squeeze into a ‘new' Mini...Further Reading:• ‘ROVER SHOWS NEW MINI; LAUNCH IS 2000' (Automotive News Europe, 1997): https://europe.autonews.com/article/19970915/ANE/709150811/rover-shows-new-mini-launch-is-2000• How the BBC covered the launch (1997): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Is-9aI7utFQ&t=112s• ‘The history of the Mini in pictures' (Daily Telegraph, 2013): https://www.telegraph.co.uk/motoring/picturegalleries/10457166/The-history-of-the-Mini-in-pictures.html?frame=2737732For bonus material and to support the show, visit Patreon.com/RetrospectorsWe'll be back tomorrow!
