Transcription of the program:
Note:  The program has some takes with John Barry talking and other takes with some of the directors that worked with him, plus some scenes from those movies and the music is heard as John Barry conducts some of the tracks but in a very elegant way with him and the musicians as shadows with satin backgrounds giving more importance to the music than the performance.
This is a transcript as much as I could follow of this special, I might add some more lines later. Also, the breaks in the following transcript are mine to help with the reading, the program has no breaks.
