The Business of Film: The top ten Westerns
With Simon Rose taking a well-earned break, we re-visit 'The Westerns' from our top ten reviews. Vicky Sayers is joined by film critic and broadcaster, James Cameron-Wilson, to discuss some of the most influential films from the Western genre. Incredibly popular during the silent film era, the Western was revived in 1939 with John Ford’s 'Stagecoach', and reached its peak in the 1950s. But are its best days really behind it?

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: Sainsbury's & Supermarkets and Paypal & Cryptocurrencies
Laith Khalaf, head of investment analysis at A J Bell, looks at the rumours of a bid for Sainsbury's. In the light of the bidding for rival supermarket chain Morrison's, he asks whether private investors should rethink their attitude towards the sector. He also looks at a new service from Paypal allowing UK consumers to trade and hold cryptocurrencies. With a potential (not yet offered in Britain) to process crypto transactions between consumers, he wonders if such a transactional facility is any more than just a sales gimmick.

This Is Money: Is there a way to boost YOUR state pension and how easy is it to now retire abroad?
When it comes to state pensions, there has been plenty of talk in recent weeks about the triple lock and what could mean next month when it comes to an uplift. However, more than 2 million receive less than £100 a week in state pension payments – is there a way to boost it? Tanya Jefferies, Lee Boyce and Georgie Frost discuss and reveal the common reasons why you might not receive the full state pension. Sticking with the pension theme, we talk through a case of an ex-Judge who faced a hefty 'advice' fee when he made a decision on a drawdown pot. Spain is still the top choice for those planning to retire overseas – but has the pandemic and Brexit put more people off a life in the sun? Lee reveals why it is now time to be chasing savings rates again and his tips for making sure a challenger bank you've never heard of is a good spot for your cash.

The Hypnotist: for restless and interrupted sleep

Adam Cox uses this episode to challenge irrational belief systems of ghosts etc .., which can generate a 'flight or fight' alertness just when you need to drop off. By re-interpreting such sounds as those of, perhaps, a guardian angel, and re-visiting calmer emotional responses he points the way to more peaceful and relaxing nights ahead.

The Business of Film: Snake Eyes, Reminiscence, The Father and Beckett
James Cameron-Wilson analyses the latest UK box office, with Free Guy still #1. At #6 is GI Joe spin-off Snake Eyes with Henry Golding. Sci-fi action film noir Reminiscence with Hugh Jackman only limps in at #11 a film so dire that, for the first time ever, James overheard somebody asking for their money back! As DVD of the week, he recommends the Oscar-winning The Father with Anthony Hopkins and Olivia Colman with excellent bonus material. And he also likes Netflix's Beckett, a thriller with John David Washington.

The Bigger Picture: Afghanistan, food shortages and why we're in a 20-year financial crisis
Professor Tim Evans of Middlesex University gives his reflections on the West's withdrawal from Afghanistan, contrasting it to the previous Soviet withdrawal and pointing out how the Taliban has changed over two decades. He looks at the "ground truth" behind food shortages and gaps on the shelves, asking what can be done to ameliorate the situation. And he highlights an article that might set the cat among the pigeons, claiming that the pandemic-induced slump is in fact part of a 20-year financial crisis.
