Saturday Night at the Movies - Saturday 28 May 2016, 5pm

John Williams

Andrew Collins takes a listen to fabulous scores from films that didn't deserve them.

Have you ever watched a film which was so-so at best, but which had a superb musical score?

In the show tonight, Andrew explores mediocre films with fantastic soundtracks.

Join him to discover which early Spielberg flop boasts a great march by John Williams, and the times when Hans Zimmer and Dmitri Shostakovich over-delivered with the music, in relation to the plot and production of the film they were writing for.

Prepare yourself for a varied two hours, covering plenty of different genres. One thing you can guarantee is that the music will be brilliant.
