The talented, innovative soundtrack composer Jerry Goldsmith died on July 21, 2004. On this anniversary of his death we celebrate his abundant creativity and resourcefulness by hearing some of the scores he wrote for television. TV shows almost never have movie-sized music budgets, so composers have to make the most of small ensembles, and Goldsmith worked with that limitation quite elegantly again and again.

David Garland presents highlights of Goldsmith's music for TV series and TV movies such as "The Twilight Zone," "Dr. Kildare," "Cain's Hundred," "The Homecoming" ("The Waltons"), "The Man from U.N.C.L.E.," "Playhouse 90," "Room 222," "The Going Up of David Lev," "A Girl Named Sooner" and more.
