WHY do we pay good money to watch hor­ror movies, or queue for ter­ri­fy­ing fair­ground rides? THE CU­RI­OUS CASES OF RUTHER­FORD & FRY (RA­DIO 4, 9.30AM, 8.45PM), hears from ex­perts about our ap­petite for thrills.

(RA­DIO 3, 10PM), Anne McElvoy re­flects on the open­ing of the mo­tor­way, and in­tro­duces a new work — the M1 Sym­phony — mark­ing this break­through mo­ment in Bri­tish mo­tor­ing.
