A parade of excerpts from great British film scores conjures up a world of stiff upper lips and suicide missions, while the late Richard Rodney Bennett’s lyrical Lady Caroline Lamb suite portrays the literary adventuress who captured Byron’s heart.

Superheroes and space travellers dominate the second half, with music by Richard Strauss, Johann Strauss, John Williams and Jerry Goldsmith.
