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 7pm 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.
As the leaves change colour and the nights grow darker, Andrew chooses a selection of his favourite comfort films and soundtracks that are perfect for a cosy night in. Animations include Ratatouille scored by Michael Giacchino, The Princess and the Frog composed by Randy Newman and Dario Marianelli's score to Paddington 2. Other feel-good scores include Downton Abbey by John Lunn, Emma by Isobel Waller-Bridge, and My Neighbour Totoro composed by Joe Hisaishi.
Saturday 9 October
Andrew revisits one of the most popular themes of the past year, and dedicates two hours of music to our favourite film stars of the furry, feathered and feline variety; animals. He features Hans Zimmer's revision of his soundtrack to The Lion King and the charming score to the family-favourite Chicken Run by John Powell, which also has a sequel in the works. Other tunes include the foot-stomping theme to Wallace & Gromit by Julian Nott, the box office hit Cruella scored by Nicholas Britell and pre-historic creatures too, thanks to John Williams' music for Jurassic Park.
