LISTEN AGAIN to this show >

On tonight's show, to mark the anniversary of the publication of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone on 26th June 1997, Howard Goodall features music from all of the Harry Potter films.  

He’ll take a chronological journey through the eight movies, as well as some of the video games, comparing the various composers who tackled the franchise - John Williams, Patrick Doyle, Nicholas Hooper and Alexandre Desplat.  


Howard’s also been brushing up on his Potter trivia. For example, do you know what Hermione Granger was going to be called? And what Muggle song would have been played at Dumbledore’s funeral?  You'll have to listen to find out.
