A concert of Hollywood film score with John Wilson and his orchestra recorded at the BBC Proms in August, a red-carpet event at the Royal Albert Hall.

Saturday May 26th

What do the films Mamma Mia, Wall- E and The Reader all have in common? They were all released 10 years ago, and Aedín remembers all three this afternoon. Plus three scores by Alex North, from Cleopatra, The Misfits and A Streetcar Named Desire. And our singers include Lin-Manuel Miranda, Marilyn Monroe, Barbara Streisand, Chris Pine and Gene Kelly.

Saturday June 2nd

Toe tapping tunes this afternoon; The Rhythm of life from Sweet Charity and I got Rhythm from An American in Paris. Barbara Cook sings much loved songs from The Music Man and Follies, we'll hear two great scores by Dario Marianelli from Atonement and Jane Eyre, and classic move music from Dial M for Murder and Cool Hand Luke.
