The Bigger Picture: David Cameron's return, Starmer's Gaza Rebellion and the Rwandan court verdict
Political commentator Mike Inidan discusses the return of David Cameron to front-line politics, considering it Rishi Sunak's last throw of the dice and an attempt at damage limitation. With a quarter of Labour MPs rebelling against Keir Starmer, Mike feels that the left wing of the party will hold him to ransom and cause havoc in the next Parliament, assuming Labour are victorious. And he looks at the Rwandan court verdict which drags the courts into politics once more and shows the PM to be weak.

Thought for the Week

Though for the Week: Who should stay, Who should go?
A warm welcome back for David, now Lord, Cameron. Let's put the years of struggling in the wake of Brexit behind us, and look forward to a new global perspective in which Britain acts as a catalyst in bringing the world together. What better place to start than by setting out plans for strengthening the democratic legitimacy and authority of the United Nations, with a new perspective on long-term governance which fully addresses the challenges of conflict, climate change and inequality.

This Is Money: How to turn your work pension into a moneyspinner and boost your pot
We all know pensions are important but most of us rarely engage with them. Yet, with a little bit of time and effort, you can get your work pension working as hard as possible for you - and at some point in the future you will be very glad you did so. Georgie Frost, Lee Boyce and Simon Lambert talk pensions: why you should start early, the reason that it involves free money, how to invest for a richer retirement many years down the line and much more. Also on the agenda, what happens if you get stuck in a mortgage with your ex, why is Lee so annoyed at a sneaky insurance tax that swiftly adds up, and can M&S's sales and share price resurgence continue? And finally, listen to the end if you want to find out where Lee buys his socks and Georgie gets her underwear.

The Business of Film: Fingernails, Quiz Lady & Pandora's Box
James Cameron-Wilson laments a box office down 44% with no new films other than high school sex comedy Bottoms. He was unimpressed by Apple TV's Fingernails with Jesse Buckley, a sci-fi romance he found weird without being funny or moving. He was, however, a fan of Disney+'s Quiz Lady, an enjoyable farce with Awkwafina, Sandra Oh & Will Ferrell which he thought great fun. He was most taken, however, by the beautifully-restored release of the 1929 Pandora's Box, starring Louise Brooks. This masterpiece of German expressionist cinema is held by many to be one of the most influential films ever made. Despite its age, James found it very modern in outlook, with some wonderful extras on the disc.

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: Three years on from Pfizer Monday, what has changed?
Three years on from Pfizer Monday, when Pfizer and BioNTech announced a Covid vaccine, Russ Mould of A J Bell looks at how different the investment world is now. Commodities have outperformed equities which have outperformed bonds, with Bitcoin doing best of all as investors search for a store of value that won't be affected by central banks. While both drugs companies' shares are lower than 3 years ago, the FTSE has outperformed the Nasdaq Composite. Are we now in a permanently different decade and have growth stocks had their day in favour of value?
