This is Money: The Best Of Edition
On the show this week, we're taking a look back at the very best of our weekly financial analysis and commentary, in partnership with NS&I, over the past few months. And what a few months it has been! From Brexit to the Bank of England rate cuts, and don’t forget the BHS and Sports Direct scandals. We’re going to take you back, and get some perspective on it all. Maybe it will start to make sense... We'll also be looking at the major takeover of Britain’s own ARM holdings, a much-loved current account getting its rates slashed, and the best and worst of Great British Auto Manufacturing. This is Money is presented by Georgie Frost, in partnership with NS&I

Morning Money: Maurice Smith on the changes to BBC iPlayer and the TV licence fee.
New TV licensing rules are making it illegal to use the BBC iPlayer app to watch the corporation's programmes without paying the licence fee. Up to now, only live content has been covered by the £145.50 annual licence, with online viewers having to confirm they have paid before they can watch a live feed of BBC channels. This policy is being extended to the catch-up service. Media Commentator Maurice Smith joined the show to discuss further.

Morning Money: Brexit caused headwinds for UK airlines - so why is Jet2 creating 1000 new jobs?
There are some new headwinds for UK airlines one way or another. Ryanair boss, Michael O’Leary, has said he expects Brexit to cost the no-frills airline 5 million passengers next year, as he predicted the UK would end up looking “pretty stupid”. Easyjet meanwhile has remained silent on market talk of a possible bid. But bucking the trend, holiday airline Jet2.com has announced plans to create almost 1000 new jobs: hiring in pilots, cabin crew, and engineers starting in September to work from eight regional airports. Is this a a savvy move or a mistake? Matt Cox has been scoping out the airline sector with John Grant, Partner at aviation data and analysis specialists MIDAS Aviation.
