Today’s edition of Saturday at the Movies features a couple of new releases that couldn’t be more different: Benjamin Wallfisch’s enthralling score from Summer in February and Alexandre Desplat’s powerful accompaniment for Godzilla.

Alongside these and other recent releases you’ll hear a bunch of favourites and other film music going back to the dawn of the genre. Pick up some popcorn and something wet and fizzy and settle back in the best seat in the house — your own.

ZBS Radio Hour

Dreams of RioToday we kick off the ZBS Radio Hour at 11am and 7pm Pacific Time — 19:00 or 03:00 UK time — with the beginning of another Jack Flanders serial: Dreams of Rio

Hypnotic voodoo beats, lush jungle noises, tropical rains, an enigmatic European Professor, an alluring female anthropologist…a few of the ingredients which M. Fulton has fashioned into this audio fantasy, Dreams of Rio, an engaging romp through the forests and samba clubs of Brazil. Dreams of Rio chronicles the tropical adventures of hero Jack Flanders as he treks through the mysterious wilds of Brazilian rainforests and impossible situations in his search for the Lost City. The crisp, stereo recordings come vibrantly alive with luscious ambient sound recorded by Fulton and Clark on location in Brazil.

Dreams follows Jack who escapes from the U.S., a country transformed into a giant shopping mall, and undertakes a journey to Rio to retrieve a statue for a friend. Once in his hands, the statue cracks open to reveal a crystal skull. This is just the beginning of an endless chain of chilling plot twists and turns. Along the way, Jack encounters vampire bats, voodoo musicians, a Carmen Miranda museum, and an alluring German anthropologist, Frieda, with whom he falls hopelessly in love. Together they journey to the Lost City.

Jack is followed by Ruby the Galactic Gumshoe as we continue The Underworld (aka Ruby 3). Ancient Sumerian mythology and other mystical gems weave throughout this taut galactic gumshoe extravaganza.

Today’s programme is presented by Elrik Merlin.
