A new series from the BBC "Sound of Cinema: The Music that Made the Movies" BBC Iplayer
Not had time to watch it all yet, but looks promising.

The programme info

"In a series celebrating the art of the cinema soundtrack, the heart of a BBC-wide season playing on radio as well as TV, Neil Brand explores the work of the great movie composers, and demonstrates their techniques. Neil begins by looking at how the classic orchestral film score emerged and why it's still going strong today.

Neil traces how in the 1930s, European-born composers such as Max Steiner and Erich Wolfgang Korngold brought their Viennese training to play in stirring, romantic scores for Hollywood masterpieces like King Kong and The Adventures of Robin Hood. But it took a home-grown American talent, Bernard Herrmann, to bring a darker, more modern sound to some of cinema's finest films, with his scores for Citizen Kane, Psycho and Taxi Driver.

Among those Neil meets are leading film-makers and composers who discuss their work, including Martin Scorsese and Hans Zimmer, composer of blockbusters like Gladiator and Inception."

I love the smell of film in the morning.

A couple of years ago the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra held an evening of live orchestral music playing perfectly in sync with scenes from some of the great classic films such as Kane, Vertigo, Ben Hur etc. They had a huge screen over the orchestra and it was just like being present at a live film scoring session. The amazing thing was that somehow they were able to project the films with dialogue only, that is with all music sound track supressed. I dont know how they did that, but it made for a truly memorable evening.

The best of all worlds- 8mm, super 8mm, 9.5mm, and HD Digital Projection,
