The Academy Awards are nearly upon us.

Who will take away the Oscar for Best Original Score? To get you in the mood, 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, with perhaps a slight bias towards SF and fantasy…

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 GMT, join us for the latest episodes of our two adventures in the ZBS Radio Hour. We begin with the third part of the Fantastic Voyages of Jack Flanders adventure: Ghost Islands. And then, at half past, Part 3 of our adventure based on the Dinotopia books by James Gurney: Dinotopia — The World Beneath. Tune in!
