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.
Join Andrew as he dons his cape, whizzes around planet Krypton and returns to earth for a programme dedicated to cinematic heroes.
He features the iconic superhero movie scores of Batman Begins by Hans Zimmer, Superman by John Williams and the most recent Spider-Man franchise composed by Michael Giacchino. Marvel's Captain Marvel also reveals more than one hero, including the first female composer to score a Marvel film, Pinar Toprak.
Later in the programme Andrew hopes to prove that not all heroes wear capes, featuring music from To Kill a Mockingbird by Elmer Bernstein and The Dead Poets Society by Maurice Jarre.

In the first of a two-part mini-series, Andrew picks out the music to films that have a big anniversary in 2021. Turning 10 years old are Captain America: The First Avenger scored by Alan Silvestri, Patrick Doyle's music for Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Rango composed by Hans Zimmer. Craig Armstrong's score to Romeo + Juliet hits the 25 year milestone, as does The English Patient by Gabriel Yared, whose score won the Academy Award in 2001. John Williams' music to Hook also marks its 30th year, alongside Beauty and the Beast by Alan Menken and Robin Hood Prince of Thieves by Michael Kamen.
