The Business of Film: Wonka & Leave The World Behind
James Cameron-Wilson celebrates UK box office +43% WoW and +173% YoY. It's the prequel Wonka that's responsible which, while a little woke and lightening Roald Dahl's dark world, is nonetheless great fun, somewhat in the moud of Mary Poppins. While Timothy Chalamet doesn't have the requisite magic, Hugh Grant excels. The music (there should be more) and dialogue is delicious and the young audience when James saw it forgot all about toilet breaks. James also saw Leave The World Behind on Netflix. Starring Julia Roberts, against type, it's an often implausible, but hugely enjoyable, Hitchcockian thriller taking its audience on a roller-coaster ride with comic underpinning.

Gadgets & Gizmos: The latest wonders of AI and an e-scooter the size of a briefcase
Steve Caplin delves into the latest AI developments. Google's Gemini AI can work with text, audio, images, video or even hand-drawn pictures. The forthcoming TV news Channel1 has AI presenters and reporters and will use "trusted news sources". Steve demonstrated how it translates on the fly. Amazon, meanwhile is to invest $4bn in a startup to generate a chatbot called "Claude". Most impressive – and potentially scary – is BrainGPT which converts thoughts into text. There's a crowdfunded e-scooter which folds down to the size of a briefcase while a Dutch shipbuilder has come up with an e-vessel to support offshore wind farms that can recharge from the turbines it is servicing.

The Bigger Picture: Sunak & the Rwanda Bill vote and legal migration
Political commentator Mike Indian discusses Rishi Sunak and the Rwanda Bill, which led to Robert Jenrick's resignation. With the Tory party once more engaged in ferocious in-fighting, are the Prime Minister's days numbered? Discussing the clampdown on legal migration, with a net 750,000 migrants last year, Mike wondered if our politicians, on all sides, are in tune with the public, especially in the Red Wall areas. Discussing why we are so bad at forward planning in the UK, Mike felt that Keir Starmer, if he is to become PM, needs a plan to show how people's lives will be improved.

So please register to join us on Tuesday 5th March at Church House, Westminster, for a major half-day event sponsored by NatWest and The Tracing Group calling for priority action to reach over one million young adults whose accounts, worth over £2 billion in total, are lying dormant because their young adult owners don't know anything about them.
