Whether it’s original film soundtracks or classical music put to powerful effect on the big screen, Classic FM invites you on a weekly journey through the finest film scores, every Saturday at 5pm with Andrew Collins.
Each week, we showcase a selection of film soundtracks, from the latest releases by the likes of Michael Giacchino, Thomas Newman or John Williams to historic scores by Shostakovich, Vaughan Williams and Korngold.
Every few months we’ll broadcast a video game music special, too, making us pretty much the only radio station in the UK that regularly plays this popular genre.
In a year like no other, where most have turned to the small screen for entertainment, Andrew dedicates two hours to the best television shows of 2020.
The music includes the theme to The Crown, written by Hans Zimmer, classical music from the Emmy Award winning Unorthodox, Netflix sensation The Haunting of Bly Manor, eerily scored by the Newton Brothers, as well as the music to The Great British Bake-Off.

Join Andrew as he explores the soundtracks of blockbusters, record-breaking movies, and the films where no expense was spared.
The dynamic score to Sam Mendes' war drama 1917 by Thomas Newman features, as does John Williams' scores to Lincoln and Jurassic Park, Howard Shore’s music for The Lord of the Rings trilogy, and James Horner's soundtrack to Titanic.
