The Road – a portion of Nick Cave’s score played on BBC4

theroad12Rebecca Jones, the arts correspondent at BBC4, talked to Joe Penhall, who adapted The Road for the big screen, and played a portion of the score Nick Cave wrote for the film.

Cave previously worked with director John Hillcoat on The Proposition, the Australian western starring Guy Pearce and Ray Winstone, for which he wrote the script as well as the score.

Also included in Jones’ report are a few audio clips from Irish writer John Banville, who won the MAN Booker Prize in 2005 for his novel The Sea and is a fan of the book, and from Cormac McCarthy himself.
