    The composer Vangelis is probably best known for his moving score for Chariots of Fire, but he also created the soundtrack for Blade Runner, perfectly matching Ridley Scott's striking visuals with an ambitious, evocative soundscape.


    In his BBC Four series Sound of Cinema: The Music That Made the Movies, Neil Brand speaks to Vangelis about his work in a rare interview.

    Blade Runner will be shown on BBC Four as part of the Sound of Cinema season on Thursday 26th September, 10pm.
