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.
Andrew Collins presents two hours of film favourites – with a twist! In a ‘Quotes Quiz’ special, every piece of music will follow a famous line from a film, voiced by a Classic FM presenter.
Frankly my dear, you will give a damn when you play along at home, guessing music (and quotes) from films including Casablanca, Back to the Future and Jaws. Where we’re going, we don’t need roads. And yes, you’re going to need a bigger boat.
Andrew features scores such as Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy by Geoffrey Burgon, The Third Man by Anton Karas and North By Northwest by Bernard Herrmann, in what promises to be two hours of musical intrigue, adventure and mystery!
Andrew Collins always welcomes listener suggestions for show themes and this week, he’s taking inspiration from Alice in Carlisle who’s asked for a programme devoted to films not in the English language.
Tonight’s programme features Spanish language favourites directed by Pedro Almodovar and Guillermo del Toro, as well as music from German-language Oscar winner The Lives of Others, French hit Amelie and the South Korean thriller The Handmaiden.
Christopher Nolan celebrates his birthday on Monday so tonight, Andrew Collins raises a glass to the sixth highest-grossing director in the world, selecting music from some of his greatest films.
Exploring Nolan’s creative partnership with the composer Hans Zimmer, Andrew features music from Inception, Interstellar and Dunkirk, and plays music from films that have influenced Nolan, such as 2001: A Space Odyssey.
