The Bigger Picture: Where now for Brexit?
Political commentator Mike Indian, author of the Groucho Tendency blog, talks to Simon Rose about the latest developments in the Brexit saga. After further defeats in the Commons, Theresa May will soon find out how she fares in the Meaningful Vote on her deal. What will happen if she loses the vote, though, as she's widely expected to do. What are the viable alternatives? Has John Bercow lost the confidence of too many MPs? Are Parliament's actoins undermining democracy? How likely is another election? Or another referendum?

Gadgets & Gizmos: Roll-up TVs and more from CES

Among exhibits were a roll-up TV, a treadmill that generates electricity as you run, a cat feeder with facial recognition, a dog dryer, Lamborghini's massage chair, a bluetooth nappy sensor and a car with legs that can climb a five-foot wall! There's also an idea for recycling Christmas trees, a look at Netflix's interactive drama and a recommended compact Bluetooth speaker.

This is Money: New Year Special - the impact of last year's big stories and campaigns
Happy New NHS? Among last year's big stories was the 70th anniversary of our beloved health service and whether we are prepared to pay for it through higher taxes. Our campaign to out the rogue, sometimes criminal, private car park operatives began with a vengeance and will continue long into 2019. Editor Simon Lambert and host Georgie Frost also explain how to avoid losing your home because of inheritance tax. And are you ready to ditch your fossil-fueled car for an electric one yet? This story will run and run. Unlike the Range Rover Sport, which was judged to be the least reliable used car to buy last year. It's all part of our look back - and forward - over the big stories and campaigns of 2018.

Policy Matters meets Economist Questions
This episode of Policy Matters is a cross-over show in which hosts Franz Buscha and Matt Dickson are joined by the host of Economist Questions, Peter Urwin. As Peter is currently leading a large research project looking at young people’s pathways through education, Franz and Matt ask him about his own journey and how that affected his social mobility. They go on to discuss the problems that the Further Education system faces in providing both second chances for those who don’t achieve well at age 16 as well as higher-level training for those more suited to the vocational route. All this in the context of dwindling education budgets in general, and a lack of policy focus on the Further Education system.

The Bigger Picture: 2019 security threats, how May has "trapped" the EU and the war on guns
Professor Tim Evans of Middlesex University ponders what the biggest security threats around the world might be in 2019. He also considers whether what one commentator calls "The Mad World of Theresa May" might have lured the EU into a trap that makes a no-deal Brexit more likely and how the Police in the UK are losing the war against guns.
