Classics from stage and screen for your Saturday afternoon presented by Evelyn Grant.

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.

You can listen again here to Aedín's interviews with Mark Hamill (pictured), 'Coco' director Lee Unkrich and producer Darla K. Anderson, composer Michael Giacchino, Dame Julie Andrews, Dame Angela Lansbery and composer, writer and actor Lin-Manuel Miranda, responsible for the Broadway smash-hit musical Hamilton and the songs of Moana.
