Main: Sounds of the Screen

Both the big screen and the small screens of film and tele­vi­sion rely heav­i­ly on music to set the tone of their sto­ries.

Today, with only a few notable excep­tions, both film and TV will try and have a sin­gle piece of music that defines the sto­ry. This is the theme. Some­times the mem­o­rable piece from the film is the end cred­its, oth­er times it’s the open­ing sequence. For TV the start and fin­ish are often the same.

So set­tle back in your favourite chair, a drink at the ready and let the music bring back the mem­o­ries of some great movie moments.
