The ambitious new science fiction film "Interstellar" is the latest collaboration by director Christopher Nolan and composer Hans Zimmer, and Zimmer has provided a score that uses a big orchestral sound to underlie the story. David Garland presents highlights from the much-discussed "Interstellar" score as well as a few earlier film music evocations of outer space.

Also, this show happens to fall the on the anniversary of the assassination of President Kennedy in 1963, and we hear some of the stately and heartfelt music that John Williams composed to commemorate that event for the film "JFK."
