Composer Jerry Fielding was a daring, experimental composer -- who happened to write colorful music for films like The Wild Bunch, and TV shows like Star Trek. After starting out as a jazz arranger, Fielding began composing for films in 1962. During a career cut short by his early death at age 57, Fielding enhanced many movies with bold, smart, dramatically effective music. Host David Garland presents a range of Fielding's work, including Straw Dogs, The Nightcomers, The Big Sleep and more.

David good selections all around. I especially found your comments on the suit from "The Trouble with Tribbles", music by Jerry Fielding, and story by David Gerrold, and everything else by guess who? But the comment for "Hogan's Heroes" isn't correct. It wasn't that kind of camp thank goodness, even though some of our people did have the extreme misfortune to land there, it was a POW camp. It was one run by a branch of their military that was supposed to be better managed, and even honored the Conventions that were signed sometime around the Twenties, even though they didn't always. However that camp was unique despite one claim that escape was impossible. It was quite possible.

David, "Hogan's Heroes" was set in a Prisoner of War Camp, NOT a concentration camp! Quite a bit of difference.
