The Bigger Picture: The Independent Group and what it might mean for British politics
Political commentator Mike Indian, author of The Groucho Tendency blog, looks at the formation of The Independent Group, with 8 ex-Labour and 3 ex-Conservative MPs to date. What do they stand for? And against? Will there be more defections? Could they change the face of British politics or is it too early to say? What might their arrival on the scene mean for the Brexit process, with the clock ticking down and even Jean-Claude Juncker confessing to "Brexit fatigue"?

Gadgets & Gizmos: Space station gravity
Steve Caplin looks at Samsung's new phones, including one far more expensive even than Apple's top of the range model. He also laments the loss of a project aiming to send people to Mars, though there's another planning a space station with gravity. For those looking for something new in dating, try an app that matches the contents of your fridges. Or perhaps a peanut butter pump is what you need. Or a cocktail-maker using capsules from coffee machine makers Keurig.

Share Interview: The legal side of blockchain and smart contracts
The legal process could be about to change dramatically if blockchain technology is used in the creation of so-called disintermediated smart contracts, with a decentralised ledger that can be seen by all. It's a brave new world for lawyers but also an exciting one, as explained by Jacqueline Watts, Senior Associate Solicitor at A City Law Firm. With the legal system based on precedent, how will things develop where there is no precedent?
