Whether it’s original film soundtracks or classical music put to powerful effect on the big screen, Classic FM invites you on a weekly journey through the finest film scores, every Saturday at 7pm with Andrew Collins.
Each week, we showcase a selection of film soundtracks, from the latest releases by the likes of Michael Giacchino, Thomas Newman or John Williams to historic scores by Shostakovich, Vaughan Williams and Korngold.
Every few months we’ll broadcast a video game music special, too, making us pretty much the only radio station in the UK that regularly plays this popular genre.
Inspired by a listener request, Andrew dedicates the programme to favourite detective and crime films. The inimitable Pink Panther scored by Henry Mancini provides a comic take on the genre, Christopher Gunning's music for Agatha Christie's Poirot features, as well as the much-loved theme to Sherlock composed by David Arnold & Michael Price, and the latest Netflix spin-off Enola Holmes composed by Daniel Pemberton also features.

To honour February as LGBT+ History Month, Andrew celebrates the talented LGBT+ community in the world of cinema. He features films which put inclusivity at their core, including The Danish Girl, an adaption of the true story of Lili Elbe and Gerda Wegener scored by Alexandre Desplat and Brokeback Mountain's score by Gustavo Santaolalla. Music featured in the coming-of-age film Call Me By Your Name, Carol scored by Carter Burwell and Nicholas Britell's music to the 2017 Best Original Score and Best Picture Oscar winner Moonlight also feature.
