Composer John Williams earned his 54th Oscar nomination for his score to Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, which allowed him to revisit the music he'd written for four earlier films, going back to Raiders of the Lost Ark, 42 years ago. As the years have passed and new characters have been introduced, there are new themes to explore, but also a memorable canon, filled with nostalgic, swashbuckling melodies. John Williams tells Brian Lauritzen he didn't start out thinking he'd write a full score for the film, but after writing a handful of themes, he found himself drawn into the project, and not wanting to let anyone else take it over.

You can listen to the full interview at 7pm Monday, and listen again back here after it airs!
