The Business of Film: Lightyear, Hustle & Spiderhead
James Cameron-Wilson looks at the UK box office, still dominated by Jurassic World Dominion and Top Gun Maverick. Pixar's Lightyear enters at #3 but with only £13.3m. James found it enjoyable but over-familiar. Emma Thompson in Good Luck To You Leo Grande arrives at #4. James also reviews the Adam Sandler basketball movie Hustle on Netflix, surprising himself by enjoying it, though he was less impressed by Spiderhead with Chris Hemsworth and Miles Teller.

He also tells of environmentally-kind spray food wrap, bionic robo-fish collecting microplastics and a worm called Zophobas Morio that eats plastic. In addition, disposable nappies are being trialled as a road surface, there's a coaxial octacopter for beating jams, a cycle brake light and smart implants to deliver medicines.

The Bigger Picture: Rail strikes, inflation & interest rates and the Government's Rwanda policy
Political commentator Mike Indian looks at this week's rail strikes, marvelling both at the Government's lack of engagement and Labour's silence on the issue. With inflation hitting a 40-year-high, he considers what policy responses are available as the prospects of stagflation loom every larger. And he looks at the Government's Rwanda policy and the proposed British Bill of Rights.

Thought for the Week

Thought for the Week: Our human legacy — personal and species
In much of modern life we value the present much higher than either the past or the future; the latter because, if we'd like our descendants to remember where they came from, we would need to leave them a legacy — which we’re clearly not prepared to do, either in our personal and civic lives. So this week we consider some of the range of areas afflicted by this timeline poverty, and how this focus on the ‘now’ threatens the whole prospect of a legacy for our species as a result of both climate change and international aggression. Background Music: Turn - The Tower of Light

This Is Money: How will rapidly rising interest rates affect you?
Base rate has gone from 0.1% to 1.25% in the space of six months, in a flurry of rate rising that would have been considered unthinkable a year ago. Yet, as the Bank of England delivered another 0.25% raise, voices were raised in some corners to demand why it hadn't gone further. Why not a 0.5% jump or even a 0.75% one, as the Fed had delivered in the US? With inflation running at 9% and expected to head north into double digits, the onus is on the Bank of England to show it has a grip and we aren't heading back to the 1970s. But is rapidly raising rates the right thing to do and how will it affect savers, borrowers and investors? Georgie Frost, Lee Boyce and Simon Lambert discuss the case for and against rate rises and what the impact is for the economy and people. Mortgage rates have risen even faster than the base rate, so what can those who need to remortgage do - and will this sink house prices? The team assess the prospects for the property market and offer their tips on what borrowers should do to prepare and protect themselves. Meanwhile, over in the US, it's the stock market that's suffering as rates rise. Why is that, and how bad could this bear market be? And finally, petrol prices keep hitting record highs and we want people to switch to electric cars but the Government has swiped away the £1,500 grant that helps people buy more affordable models. Will that make a difference, or has electric car demand reached a level where ditching a bung to help out is wise?

The Hypnotist: Danielle Confidence
Building confidence to deal with interviews and applications for promotion can be challenging when potential role models appear boastful or arrogant — behaviour one might not want to copy. So it can be useful to seek out an example of someone who not only has the necessary confidence but also the characteristics one might wish to emulate. This approach is known as a circle of excellence or, as Adam Cox describes it, a cylinder of confidence.
