Saturday Night at the Movies for Andrew Collins

Classic FM has signed the writer and broadcaster Andrew Collins to host its two-hour film music programme, Saturday Night at the Movies.

He’ll take over from Tommy Pearson on March 7, who has been hosting the show since Howard Goodall left.

Andrew Collins is Film Editor of Radio Times and a weekly television critic for The Guardian.

In his first show on Classic FM, he’ll have a celebration of classic film scores from Bernard Herrmann, Elmer Bernstein and John Williams. In other shows throughout March, he will feature music from winners of the Bafta Games Awards, the big movies of 2015 and the most popular film scores from the Classic FM Hall of Fame.

Andrew Collins said: “Like many people, I found my way into classical music through film soundtracks, so it is with great pleasure and a sense of privilege that I join Classic FM to host Saturday Night At The Movies. It’s a show that has long entertained me as a listener, combining my twin lifelong loves: music and cinema. I look forward to mixing the familiar with some buried treasure over the coming months.”

Sam Jackson, managing editor of Classic FM, said: “Andrew is a first-rate broadcaster, whose infectious enthusiasm for film soundtracks makes him the perfect host for Saturday Night at the Movies.  I am thrilled to welcome him to the Classic FM family.”
