Episode 6: John Powell - Cue the Music is back and Ralph is discussing the scores to the three Bourne Films, composed by the British film composer John Powell.

Treadstone Assassins - The Bourne Identity
Bourne on Land - The Bourne Identity
Gathering Data - The Bourne Supremacy
Atonement - The Bourne Supremacy
Six Weeks Ago - The Bourne Ultimatum
