Saturday At The Movies

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.
