A night of drama, romance, tragedy – and sometimes all three.

Epic tales need epic soundtracks - and tonight, Radio 3's Petroc Trelawny shares his favourites. From worldsaving Avengers and the legends of Middle Earth to tragedy on a personal and global scale, composers James Horner, Howard Shore, John Williams, Hans Zimmer and many others get right to the centre of the emotional drama.
