Saturday Night at the Movies - Saturday 15 August 2015, 5pm

Andrew Collins boldly goes where no man has gone before (except several hundred actors and astronauts).

This week Andrew Collins heads into space, the final frontier, for an intergalactic themed show, as suggested by one of Classic FM’s listeners.

Among the stellar soundtracks, Andrew enjoys the great classics as put to use in Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey and pays homage to the mega-franchises Star Wars and Star Trek.

And coming a little more up-to-date, there's powerful music from Gravity and Interstellar.
