This DVD presents a series of conversations about Alex North and the score of SPARTACUS

Rather than approaching our on-camera discussions like a conventional documentary - with film clips, photos, and underscoring - we felt that it would be much more interesting to simply let these composers talk, expressing their own enthusiasm for Alex North's work. To that end, the interviews are organized thematically but presented in their raw state, offering the experience of sitting across from these great musicians. - Varese Sarabande

The interviews were filmed on March 5, 15 and April 6, 2010 in Los Angeles, California.

Featuring interviews with:

Alexandre Desplat
Mark Isham
David Newman
Lalo Schifrin
Robert Townson
Brian Tyler
John Williams
Christopher Young

Bonus Features: Recording Spartacus Love Theme with
Mark Isham
Diego Navarro
