See if Howard Goodall plays your choice of the best animated soundtracks. Saturday Night at the Movies, 15 November 2014 5pm.
Music and animation have been happy bedfellows since the earliest days of cinema. Walt Disney and his contemporaries were among the first to explore the possibilities of sound for films, recognising the importance of music to creating magic in the movies.
From Snow White and the Seven Dwarves to Frozen, via Fantasia and The Jungle Book, Disney scores rate among the most popular film music of all time.
But what about the stirring soundtracks to some recently released animated features by two Oscar-winning composers - Boxtrolls (pictured) by Dario Marianelli and The Book of Life by Gustavo Santaolalla? And how about the high-octane thrills of How to Train Your Dragon and Kung Fu Panda?
Howard Goodall has been perusing your suggestions for music from your favourite animated films, so listen out to see if he plays them.
