Matthew Sweet presents a live edition of BBC Radio 3’s film music programme. Newcastle University boasts a distinctive International Film Research Centre, and its founding director Guy Austin, an authority on French Cinema, traces a musical time line through Gallic film from the pioneering Lumière Brothers, Georges Méliès and the Pathé Brothers up to the present day. The programme presents a series of clips and soundtracks outlining the riches of a film culture from the country where cinema was born.
Matthew Sweet is the author of Shepperton Babylon: The Lost Worlds of British Cinema – a history of the British film business from the silent days and has presented TV and radio programmes exploring film.
