John Lithgow and Alfred Molina in 'Love is Strange' John Lithgow and Alfred Molina in 'Love is Strange' (Still image)

From the Hollywood-style romantic fervor of Elmer Bernstein's music for "By Love Posessed" and Dimitri Tiomkin's "Wild Is the Wind," to the more restrained but effective use of Chopin in the recent film "Love Is Strange," film scores find many ways to tell love stories, and David Garland presents a few examples

Also, the novels of Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings have inspired more than one movie, and we hear music from two of them: the classic "The Yearling," and "Cross Creek."

Why can't I stream this programme (and others) as I used to do? Very frustrating, not listener-friendly and therefore and not conducive to raising money during your fund-raisers. I can't always listen at the time of broadcast and always enjoyed being able to listen the next morning.
Very disappointing.

Hello, headline writers. The word "Is" is a verb. It needs to be upper case, as presented in the body copy -- "... the recent film 'Love Is Strange,' film scores ..." -- see how that works? It's not rocket science. Basics.
