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.
Andrew laces up his hiking boots and digs out his waterproofs for a programme that gets us back to nature. The natural world is brought to life thanks to Ilan Eshkeri's soundtrack to the latest David Attenborough series A Perfect Planet, Alex Wurman's score to March of the Penguins, and the evocative score to Blue Planet II by Hans Zimmer.
Andrew also picks his favourite tracks from films that celebrate all things land and sea, including a deep-dive into the ocean with Thomas Newman's soundtrack to Finding Nemo, a journey to the Himalayas with Dario Marianelli's Everest score and there's a nod to our feathered friends in Rio 2 composed by John Powell.

Join Andrew for a fascinating programme that celebrates the soundtracks of great films about films. Ennio Morricone’s sun-kissed score for Cinema Paradiso features, as does the story of how Mary Poppins came to our screens in Saving Mr. Banks which was scored by Thomas Newman. Carter Burwell's music for the Coen Brothers' cult hit Hail, Caesar! is also included, as is the all-important music for the 2011 silent film The Artist by Ludovic Bource.

Andrew presents a programme of music from films inspired by travel, picking the best film scores to transport listeners around the globe.
Starting with Victor Young's score to the whistle-stop Around the World in 80 Days, then visits to the snowy hills of The Grand Budapest Hotel scored by Alexandre Desplat, Athens with Alberto Iglesias' score to The Two Faces of January, New York with Bernstein's music to West Side Story, and Hans Zimmer's score to The Lion King set on the African plains.
