1 August 2016, 09:56

Which film score will reach the No.1 spot this year? We asked our presenters about the pieces of movie music they're backing this year…

Every year we ask you to vote for your top three favourite pieces of film music – last year Howard Shore topped the chart, with John Williams's iconic score for Schindler's List a close second.

Now is your last chance to have your say in the 2016 Classic FM Movie Music Hall of Fame! Voting closes tonight. If you need some inspiration, our presenters reveal below how they have been voting. Includes a trombone performance by John Suchet!
