Thought for the Week

Thought for the Week: Shadow over Christmas — Massacre of the Innocents
The Holy Family's flight in Egypt was followed by the 'massacre of the innocents' in and around Bethlehem. Today's Middle Eastern tragedy is again denying thousands of children and young people a future — why can we not learn to live in peace with each other? Every child born into our world has the same mix of amazing potential, whatever their gender, nationality, race or religion. It's not nature which condemns them to mediocrity and despair, but nurture. Therefore, let's all make a new year resolution to vastly improve the way we value and respect children and young people: not only for the sake of their current circumstances and prospects of survival, but also to give them all a real chance to achieve their true potential as adults.

The Hypnotist: The Calm and Empowered Transition to Retirement
For those who experienced the transition to 'retirement' during the pandemic lock-downs and working from home, it probably did feel calm and empowering (notwithstanding anxiety over the virus itself) — however, for many people it can feel more like a cliff-edge. This episode helps you to let go of the stresses and anxiety of the workplace and plan for that new chapter in your life: it's called 'future pacing'. The Christmas/New Year break is a great time to build a compelling version of your future.

The Bigger Picture: What does 2024 hold in store, domestically and internationally?
We go stargazing with Professor Tim Evans of Middlesex University as he looks ahead to 2024. What will happen politically in the UK when so many people feel that our politicians have so little idea about the realities of daily life? On the international front, the world has turned so much darker in 2023 with so many danger spots around the world. What will the future hold, particularly when politics is polarising in so many places? What will the result of the shifting sands of demographics be and how will the young find meaning and success in a world that has become so challenging for them?

The Business of Film: Godzilla Minus One, Rustin & Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget
James Cameron-Wilson reports on the UK box office. Takings have dropped 25% but Wonka still rules. Godzilla Minus One is #2, a rare foreign language subtitled movie to ride high in the charts, though taking only £817,000. James found it a decent monster movie but no more. On Netflix, he thought Rustin, the real story of the gay civil rights activist, interesting despite much overacting. He was delighted, however, by Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget, which he reckoned not just the best animated movie of the year but one of the best movies of 2023 full stop.
