Sound of Cinema: Live from the BFI

Sean Rafferty presents a special show live from BFI, Southbank in London, to launch Radio 3's Sound of Cinema season, and to tie in with the BFI's focus on the Gothic. His guests include Norma Herrmann, widow of the great film score composer Bernard Herrmann whose celebrated partnership with Alfred Hitchcock gave rise to some of the most disconcerting scores in cinema history; silent film pianist and composer Neil Brand; and the Tippett Quartet playing live and showcasing some of the best music to come out of the movies.
