Episode 87: Writer Director Garth Jennings On Sing, Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy & Son Of Rambow

Soundtracking with Edith Bowman

Without wishing to sound sycophantic, it's hard to imagine a more humble talent that Garth Jennings. During this episode, he and Edith discuss many of his extraordinary creative endeavours - though on hearing the conversation you'd be forgiven for thinking he'd had next to nothing to do with any of them at all.  Don't be fooled.  Having founded production company Hammer & Tongs with Dominic Leung and Nick Goldsmith in 1993, Garth has been instrumental in a string of iconic music videos and also written and directed Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy, Son of Rambow and most recently Sing.  Oh yes, he's penned a children's book too.  Expect music from composer Joby Talbot, Blur, Fatboy Slim, Betty Wright and more.
