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.
Andrew marks filmmaker Ang Lee's birthday with scores from some of his hit films including Life of Pi scored by Mychael Danna, Brokeback Mountain with music by Gustavo Santaolalla and Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon composed by Tan Dun. He also features listeners’ favourite Studio Ghibili films scores which include Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Castle and Princess Mononoke by Joe Hisaishi.

To mark Halloween, Andrew explores the music from some of the best magical, supernatural, thriller and horror films. Highlights include John Williams' score to The Witches of Eastwick, the title theme to Goosebumps by Danny Elfman, Maurice Jarre's music from Ghost, iconic tracks from the Harry Potter franchise by John Williams and a magical suite of music from The Chronicles of Narnia composed by Geoffrey Burgon.
