“Maybe the world’s best film podcast” David Cairns, shadowplay blog. 'Music for Films' the underground cinema podcast. Made in Scotland, 'Music for Films' is about the music, films and the music for films which have shaped people’s lives. On our mission to explore the subterranean sources of London’s culture we created the Scala Underground Film Map, which imagines the Tube as a film festival programmed by the legendary cinema at Kings Cross. The BeeKeepers are interested in connecting the past, the present and the future, and in people choosing their own adventures.
