Sir Tim Rice on Past Success and Present Work

George talks with Sir Tim about how the success of shows like 'Jesus Christ Superstar' has followed him through his life, and what he's working on now.

In this clip, Sir Tim talks about

Working on remounted versions of past shows
"Well, I don't do very much on some of the old stuff that comes back - I mean, if somebody's kind enough to do Superstar as was done recently in Stratford, or Evita, or The Lion King for that matter, I'm delighted."

On what he's working on now
"I'm working at the moment on a new show based on the book 'From Here to Eternity' which was made into a film - the Burt Lancaster/Frank Sinatra movie - and that I'm enjoying very much, because that's something new. I don't want to spend my whole life going back over the old stuff."
