Lights, camera, action - for this podcast we're heading to the movies! The silver screen meets the brass band! 

Frank writes about this new programme, "our next music podcast is all about cinema, the old 20th Century Fox fanfare heralds forty five minutes of music from the likes of John Williams, Vangelis, Morricone and Jules Styne - and even some Ralph Vaughan Williams and Rossini - can you guess the films?"
