This Is Money: How will the Ukraine crisis hit your finances and what should investors do?
Russia's invasion of Ukraine has created a tragic situation that goes far beyond worries about our finances, but it will have an impact on them. The ins and outs of the conflict are not something that This is Money is qualified to comment on, but the financial impact of events is something that readers and listeners come to us to learn about. Georgie Frost, Tanya Jefferies and Simon Lambert look at what that impact could be. How the Russian-Ukraine conflict will affect out personal finances: from energy bills, to petrol prices and food, to the immediate volatility it has thrust on to people's investments, the team look at what is happening and what may happen next. Should investors stay calm and stick to their guns, or are their merits in one outlier suggestion of moving 50% to cash and battening down the hatches? Also, the added problem of inflation for people's investments and how to combat it. Plus, the latest on the state pension underpayment scandal and how some councils are now trying to rake in money from those paid back lump sums. And finally, its not an uncommon situation now to sell a property and step out of the market while you find a new one, but what should you do with a huge sum of cash in the meantime?

Motley Fool Money: Why We Never Try To Time The Market
A sudden upswing for stocks late in the week is only the latest reminder of why it's a bad idea to try and time the market. Jason Moser and Ron Gross share data that proves staying in the market is much more efficient (and lucrative) for investors than jumping in and out, and discuss: Etsy increasing their seller transaction fee, Block's transaction revenue growth, Home Depot and Lowe's getting different reactions from similar 4th-quarter reports, and the latest from Beyond Meat, Mercadolibre, Fulgent Genetics, and Booking Holdings. Chief Investment Officer Andy Cross talks with Jeff Green, CEO of The Trade Desk, and Jason and Ron answer a listener's question about how to build a portfolio. Jason's radar stock is Zoom Video and Ron unveils his "Resilient Basket" of stocks! (Costco, Disney, Domino's Pizza, Home Depot, Microsoft, Target).

The Business of Film: Dog, Thirteen Minutes & Texas Chainsaw Massacre
With Uncharted still riding high, James Cameron-Wilson reviews last weekend's UK box office. The only big new film is Channing Tatum's directorial debut, Dog, at #4 in which he also stars, oddly marketed as a family film. Resorting to streamed movies, James reviews box-ticking tornado disaster movie Thirteen Minutes with Thora Birch and Anne Heche and Texas Chainsaw Massacre, the 9th in the franchise, which he found a cut above the average modern horror, though not for the faint-hearted.

This Is Money: What is a 'midlife MOT' and could it help you onto a path for a richer future?
A free 'midlife MOT' course has been launched aimed at people who want to do a stock take of their current finances, career and health. This is an idea championed by the finance industry and government. But is it any good? Investments and pensions editor Tanya Jefferies undertook the course by finance giant Legal & General and the Open University and tells Georgie Frost and Lee Boyce of her experience. NS&I has doubled the rates on its green bonds – are they still missing the mark or is the boost good for eco-conscious savers? The Power of Attorney system has come in for plenty of slack this week with the 'creaking' system said to be in desperate need of improvement. What can be done and why is it important? Could you, or someone you know, be entitled to a social broadband tariff which could save hundreds on an annual internet bill? And finally, Lee goes into detail about This is Money's new retro revival series – with the first 'cash in the attic' style subject in focus being video games, and more specifically Nintendo and its late 90s N64 console.

The Hypnotist: Procrastination.
Our approach to dealing with money matters is often shaped by the examples set by our parents, which in some cases we may replicate and in others we react against. Adam Cox helps to untangle these experiences and, in so doing, tackles the challenge of procrastination - when things are put into the 'too difficult to resolve' box. He introduces another perspective, that of the utility cost of doing nothing. If you find yourself struggling to determine the best way forward, this episode could be for you.
