Saturday At The Movies

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?
