Sound of Cinema: 212. Music And British Animation

SOUND OF CINEMA: 212. MUSIC AND BRITISH ANIMATION (320kbs-m4a/134mb/58mins)
BBC Radio 3 broadcast: 14th July 2018


Matthew Sweet considers music for British animation as the BFI mark the 50th anniversary of Yellow Submarine. The programme looks back on scores for some of the classic children's animation titles from the likes of Oliver Postgate and Ivor Wood including 'Bagpuss'; 'Ivor the Engine'; and 'Camberwick Green'; music for Jerry and Sylvia Anderson's 'Thunderbirds'; the 1954 'Animal Farm'; and 'Watership Down' and 'Yellow Submarine'. The programme also features music from Aardmann Animation features 'Chicken Run' and the recent 'Early Man'; as well as Raymond Briggs's 'Ethel and Earnest' and The Snowman'.

And on a similar theme, as Incredibles 2 reaches UK screens this week, there's a chance to hear some of Michael Giacchino's new score.
