Hello and welcome to the first in a new string of extras looking at directors. And where better to start than with taking a look at Steven Spielberg, a director who has been at the helm of so many great films.
With over fifty directorial credits under his belt, it was difficult to select the films that we would concentrate on but we finally decided on Duel (1971) for Marc, Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977) for Paul, E.T. The Extra Terrestrial (1982) for Michael and Schindler's List (1993) for Robert. This was followed by Bridge of Spies (2015) for a group discussion.
Don't forget, there is still time to enter our competition to win an Amazon gift voucher and the chance to appear on a future podcast episode via Skype. Details can be found at http://backtothefeaturepodcast.com/competition.
The next main podcast will take a look at the cinema release Independence Day 2: Resurgence, the home release of 13 Hours and the classic Kenneth Brannagh film, Henry V.
