This week, Howard Goodall is testing our nerves and devoting the show to the thriller and suspense genres. 

As a practicing composer himself, Howard can highlight with some authority how the great masters of movie music go about enhancing edge-of-the-seat tension. 

Howard has a great selection of music from specific scenes to demonstrate their techniques. Listen out for John Williams ' music for Jaws , Steven Price 's Oscar and BAFTA winning score for Gravity and various spine-chilling Bernard Herrmann scores from the films of Alfred Hitchcock.
