Film composer Hans Zimmer discusses his first live show

German-born composer Hans Zimmer has created the soundtracks for more than a hundred Hollywood films, including Gladiator, Pirates of the Caribbean and Inception.

He is now embarking on a tour of 30 European cities, starting in the UK, playing his most famous pieces of music.

Rebecca Jones spoke to the legendary film composer about his first live show, music drowning out the dialogue in films and the fear of creating fresh work.
