Saturday Night at the Movies: 22 June 2013

Tonight, Howard Goodall is off to the Magic Kingdom celebrating the music from Walt Disney classics.

This Saturday, it’s a Walt Disney special on Saturday Night at the Movies, as Howard Goodall celebrates some of the most famous family films in the history of the big screen.  

Beginning with the brilliant overture to Dumbo, Howard will go on to feature all sorts of other classic Disney movies including The Jungle Book and The Aristocats.  

We’ll then come bang up-to-date with Danny Elfman’s music for Oz the Great and the Powerful, Patrick Doyle’s score for Brave, and Randy Newman’s soundtracks for A Bug’s Life and Cars.  

Plus – a couple of famous pieces, put to very good use in the Disney classic Fantasia more than 70 years ago.
