This Is Money: Is loyalty starting to pay?
Does loyalty pay, or is it just a bizarre concept we have allowed businesses to convince us might exist while they take advantage? As banks and building societies hint at better rates for those who have stuck by them and insurers find themselves forced at regulatory gunpoint to at least not sting existing customers, we look at the loyalty reward and penalty. At what point does the corporate idea of loyalty rewards meet the reality of whether it’s worth sticking with the same provider? Georgie Frost, Lee Boyce and Simon Lambert discuss loyalty, its rewards and its drawbacks on this week’s podcast. Plus, Britcoin, a new idea for the Bank of Mum and Dad and beach huts - are they a cheap property goldmine?

The Business of Film: A Quiet Place 2, Gunda, Summertime and Awake
James Cameron-Wilson marvels at the justified success of A Quiet Place 2 at the top of the UK box office, with a take worthy of pre-pandemic box office. He found the film both thrilling and moving. He was also drawn in – eventually – by Gunda, the cinematic equivalent of slow TV, a black and white documentary following every detail of the daily life of a pig. He rewatched and recommends the 2015 French love story Summertime but had trouble staying awake during Netflix's Awake, a dystopian sci-fi film in which nobody can sleep.

This session can help people at either end of this spectrum to find a balance.
