Matthew Sweet with a selection of film music inspired by the political world of Washington DC, in the week of the release of 'Miss Sloane' with a score by Max Richter.

The programme looks at some of the many films covering the Nixon era, but also looks back at the ways that Washington has been covered in American cinema from the time of Frank Capra's "Mr Smith Goes to Washington" through to films like "Wag The Dog", "Bulworth", "Advise and Consent", "Lincoln", "Clear and Present Danger" and "Enemy of the State". The Classic Score of the Week is David Shire's music for Francis Ford Coppola's "The Conversation".
