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 anticipation of the eagerly awaited third season of The Crown next month, Andrew features Hans Zimmer’s magnificent title sequence to the television programme and other music depicting the Royal Family.
There’s music fit for Royalty written by French composer Alexandre Desplat, including his scores for the 2006 biographical drama The Queen and 2010 historical drama The King’s Speech, starring Dame Helen Mirren and Colin Firth respectively. Andrew also features regal music from The Other Boleyn Girl, Mrs. Brown and the television series Victoria.
