The Hypnotist: Hypnosis to Handle Stress
Emotions can be stirred by memories from the past or anxiety for the future - they're not just in the present. This short episode uses the metaphor of a boat on the water, where your emotions are represented by the waves: sometimes pleasurable, sometimes unsettling. However just like the waves, our emotions are all temporary, and we have the capacity to handle them.

The Business of Film: Jackass Forever, Moonfall, The Eyes of Tammy Faye, Munich & Oscar noms
James Cameron-Wilson looks at the first box office chart since Covid to have 5 films taking over £1m at the weekend. #2 is Jackass Forever ("sickeningly awful") while Roland Emmerich's Moonfall is #4 ("so bad it's enjoyable"). Only making #17 is Oscar-nominated Jessica Chastain in The Eyes of Tammy Faye. On Apple+ is the disappointing The Sky Is Everywhere but James loved Munich: The Edge of War on Netflix with Jeremy Irons as Chamberlain. He also runs down the list of Oscar nominations, contrasting them with the odd nominations from BAFTA.
