Another adventure in music of epic, widescreen proportions.

Tonight's classical selections are infused by the spirit of the kings of silent comedy. Featured composers include: Christopher Chaplin, son of Charlie; Keaton Henson, who was named in honour of Buster; and Leroy Shield, whose film music for Laurel & Hardy has been lovingly reconstructed by pianist Alessandro Simonetto.

Produced by Jack Howson for Reduced Listening.
