Today we present a selection of great movie and TV themes, incidental music and suites based on the original scores.

The programme today goes back to the very first piece of film music — a work by Saint-Saens; covering the top British film composers of the 30s and 40s like Alwyn and Addinsell, and on to more recent work by the likes of John Barry, John Williams, Jerry Goldsmith and many more, with perhaps a slight bias towards SF and fantasy… and as it’s the 1st anniversary of the London Olympics, I’ve included some of the rather cool soundtrack from the Opening Ceremony.

Pick up some popcorn and something wet and fizzy and settle back in the best seat in the house — your own.
