Forever synonymous with the mythic landscape of Monument Valley, John Fords best work has a lyrically romantic tone which captivated such international filmmakers as Akira Kurosawa, Ingmar Bergman, Francois Truffaut and Satyajit Ray.

The British critic-turned-director Lindsay Anderson recognised the poetry in Ford and wrote an indispensable book, ''About John Ford''. Peter Bogdanovich also got close to the often contrary, sometimes acerbic, director and contributed both a book and a fascinating documentary, ''Directed by John Ford''.

Our presentation includes music from Ford's last great work, the psychological western, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, including the rare Fairmount Singers version of the Burt Bacharach - Hal David penned theme song, the original soundtrack of the curved-screen three-projector Cinerama epic, How the West Was Won, a portmanteau film to which Ford contributed the best thing in it, a short civil war episode.

The programme also contains the main title and a waltz from the officer's dance at Fort Grant from Ford's James Stewart / Richard Widmark vehicle, Two Rode Together, Lonnie Donegan's hit recording of the theme song from the fine Wayne western, The Comancheros, which he in part directed, and the Frank Devol / ''By'' Dunham score for McLintock!, which reunited "Duke" with the immortal Maureen O'Hara.
