The Business of Film: Movies returning, 365 Days, Radioactive & Olivia de Havilland
James Cameron-Wilson brings news of more cinemas reopening and more new films to show in them. He looks at the top 10 movies on Netflix and reviews the Netflix success 365 Days, a Polish erotic drama which, says James, should be given a wide berth. More interesting, he found, is the DVD release of Radioactive, with Rosamund Pike starring as Marie Curie. He also looks at the life and career of Olivia de Havilland, one of the last of the stars from Hollywood's golden era.

The Bigger Picture: What should investors do as we head into a severe economic depression?
Tim Price, director of Price Value Partners, looks at the government's response to the onset of Covid-19 and considers the likely effects of the economic measures taken. Wondering why equities have been so buoyant ahead of what he believes will be the worst economic depression anybody alive has experienced, he wonders why the mainstream media has been so unquestioning and why so little attention has been paid to the economic effects of lockdown. Although highly nervous of most stocks and bonds, he does offer suggestions for investors similarly concerned for the future.
