    Abstract:
    Box of Broadcasts (BoB) is an online archive of radio and TV broadcasts, available to subscribing educational institutions in the United Kingdom. I curated this playlist for the service in summer 2020, and have made my accompanying notes available here for those without access to BoB. The clips in the playlist illustrate various manners and effects of classical music’s use in film. The playlist begins with nondiegetic uses of classical music, before moving to examples of characters interacting with diegetic classical music, and finally to clips from films in which classical music is the focus. The notes give brief commentary on each clip, and in most cases also suggest a specific scholarly article or chapter that discusses the example in more detail.
