The Business of Film: Aladdin & Rocketman
James Cameron-Wilson casts his eye over the UK box office, picking up after the previous lethargic week.

For home release James recommends Mark Gillis's British movie Sink, comparing it to I, Daniel Blake only with laughs.

Gadgets & Gizmos: 5G stalled by lampposts
Steve Caplin goes automotive, looking at Dyson's plans for an electric off-road car, the Honda e with swift recharge, the electric Jaguar E-type with optional original engine and Hydrogen-powered double-decker buses. He explains why 5G has been stalled by lamppost problems and why Jeff Bezos thinks he can have a moonbase by 2024 while Elon Musk thinks he can get to Mars by then. Australia's $50 note issue was marred by a spelling mistake, Barcelona has a self-charging e bike and there's a very cheap credit-card sized charger to take around with you.
