Sue Perkins and Tom Service unravel everything you ever wanted to know about the symphony, but were too afraid to ask.To end the series, the pair discuss and play extraordinary long-lost extracts of Sibelius's Eighth Symphony, and present your feedback on the thorny question of applause between movements...as well as answering a mixed bag of questions sent in over the course of the series.
