John Barry OBE, 1999
The late Oscar-winning musician/composer.
David Munns OBE, Chairman of the MITS Award committee:
“A look at the long list of compositions, spanning nearly four decades, always prompts the comment, “I didn’t release he wrote that”, and the realisation dawns that there is a great deal before and beyond those great Bond scores. Congratulations to John Barry, five time academy award winner, newly appointed OBE and the 1999 Music Industry Trusts Award winner.”
