Afternoon on 3's autumn focus on music composed in the United States of America gets underway with a bang - and with the Ulster Orchestra, whose recent summer season in Belfast made a special feature of American music. As part of the BBC's Sound of Cinema season, they also celebrate music composed for that quintessentially American film genre, the Western - culminating on Friday with a film music spectacular, live from the Ulster Hall in Belfast.
