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 chooses music from films that have given us famous quotable lines that have all but entered the English lexicon.
We may well feel the need, the need for speed because Harold Faltermeyer’s score for the 80s classic Top Gun is featured, before we’ll be made an offer we can’t refuse – the soaring ‘Love Theme’ from Nino Rota’s The Godfather. We’ll also hear the music that remind us that “life is like a box of chocolates”: Alan Silvestri’s Oscar-nominated score for Forrest Gump.
