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.
Allow plenty of time to collect your boarding pass and get through security, because this week, we’re travelling up into the skies for Saturday Night at the Movies.
Highlights include Howard Shore's Golden Globe-winning soundtrack to the The Aviator, the non-stop action of the Harrison Ford vehicle Air Force One as scored by Jerry Goldsmith, and the eerie momentum of James Horner’s music to the psychological thriller Flight Plan. Up, up and away!
Tonight on Saturday Night at the Movies, we keep our feet planted firmly on the ground, put on our toughest hiking boots and our best all-weather gear, and explore the isolated corners of the earth.
Andrew Collins leads our crew, as together we hike the Himalayan mountain range with Dario Marianelli's haunting Everest score as a musical guide. We’ll then collect Bernard Hermann and learn about his epic symphonic score to Journey to the Centre of the Earth. Finally, we'll meet A.R. Rahman, with his evocative underscoring to Danny Boyle’s film that demonstrates a man who struggles with the ultimate test of endurance and determination: 127 Hours.
