Saturday At The Movies

in Daily Programme

by rieladmin on Saturday, 28 April, 2012

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

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

ZBS Radio Hour

Then at 11am and 7pm Pacific Time / 19:00 and 03:00 UK Time, join us for the latest episodes of our two adventures in the ZBS Radio Hour. We begin with the second part of the Fantastic Voyages of Jack Flanders adventure: The White Castle. And then, at half past, the first part of a brand new adventure: The Insiders’ Lounge

Welcome to a kind of “Country & Western Twilight Zone”, a strange, yet eerily familiar parallel universe, where lonely people who don’t “fit in” may, for the very first time, find themselves, and a home … if they’re lucky.

At school, Homer Duckencover always felt he was an Outsider, forever wishing he were Somewhere Else. And then one day it happens: everything around him suddenly just … disappears! And Homer finds himself “on a back road, at the outskirts of the Middle of Nowhere” — utterly lost in an unexplainable Netherworld — until an old truck stops and a voice says, “Get in”. It’s his high school girlfriend, the one who mysteriously vanished a couple of years ago! And now she’s driving Homer to the very place he’s always yearned for, but never knew existed: The weirdly folksy “Insiders’ Lounge”. But Powerful Forces are scheming to capture Homer and return him to his old world. Having just tasted happiness, will Homer be able to keep it? … Will any of us?

Written and Directed by Leslie Fuller, Produced by ZBS Foundation.
