Sir James MacMillan, Penny Woolcock, The Gift, Road movies

Sir James MacMillan discusses his 4th Symphony - his first for 13 years - premiering at tonight's Prom, and how it was inspired by ritual and the work of Renaissance composer Robert Carver.

Award-winning film-maker Penny Woolcock discusses her new installation, Utopia, created in collaboration with designers Block 9. Woolcock spent months uncovering the stories of members of the public to produce complex soundscapes that paint a portrait of contemporary London and cover issues from inequality to education, crime, housing and social media. Dreda Say Mitchell reviews psychological thriller The Gift, in which an acquaintance from one man's past brings him mysterious gifts and a horrifying secret to light after more than 20 years. As families across the land pack their bags and load up the car for the summer holidays, Adam Smith reflects on that cinematic staple 'the road trip', and what lessons we could learn from the big screen before setting off.
