May & Corbyn haunted by ghosts of governments past
As Theresa May has gotten on with Brexit, she's found her path haunted by ghosts of governments past. Not one but two of her predecessors have re-emerged to give the Prime Minister their take on her strategy. But what's been remarkable is that the interventions have come from opposite sides of the bench - old foes Tony Blair and John Major have joined forces to warn the public of unrealistic Brexit promises. Lord Neil Kinnock was Labour leader for most of the 1980s until he faced off against John Major in the '92 election. Share Radio's Alex Clark spoke to Lord Kinnock to get his take on Blair's and Major's interventions.

Company Casebook: Lightvert
Now here's a thing.... Giant adverts the size of skyscrapers? Which you see for just a few seconds .. before they disappear.. a bit like the Cheshire Cat. Sounds like something out of a sci fi movie, but in fact it's already a reality and on this week's Company Casebook Linda Lewis goes behind the scenes at Lightvert, a digital 'out of home' media technology firm which has developed a way of projecting giant advertisements onto the side of buildings for just a few moments, before they disappear from your vision. You don't need special glasses. You SEE them with the naked eye. Lightvert developed the technology with the aid of a grant from Innovate UK and now they're crowdfunding.
