The Business of Film: The Eras Tour, The Miracle Club, Blackberry & Fair Play
James Cameron-Wilson reviews the latest UK box office where the Taylor Swift concert film, The Eras Tour, sweeps everything before it with a massive £5.7m take, making it the highest-ever event release in the UK, just on its first weekend. James was disappointed by The Miracle Club (#9) despite Laura Linney and Maggie Smith. Simon Rose caught up with Blackberry, finding it one of the best business movies he's seen. On Netflix, James was full of praise for hedge-fund-set Fair Play, an intense and emotional drama, with Phoebe Dynevor a talent on the rise.

The Bigger Picture: Sunak's visit to Israel, Keir Starmer & the Labour Conference and the by-elections
Political commentator Mike Indian reflects upon the Prime Minister's visit to Israel and the UK reaction to the delicate situation, feeling that this is Sunak's first test on the world stage. After attending the Labour Party conference, he feels that, for the first time in a long time, Labour feel like a party expecting to be in government soon. And, on the day of two by-elections, he wonders if the Prime Minister will call the General Election earlier than he has to.

Thought for the Week

Thought for the Week: Unbridled Revenge is not the answer
Unbridled revenge just leads to an escalation of the cycle of violence: in a world which possesses such an arsenal for mass destruction, we have to learn how to deal with national insecurity in ways which promote rather than destroy international harmony. In this episode of Share Radio's Thought for the Week, we set out realistic routes by which this can be achieved. Background music: 'Sarabande' by Joel Cummins

The Hypnotist: Surrendering the Warrior for a New Identity
Aggression very often arises from insecurity, as the desire to take an imagined reality of absolute control seeks to level the playing field: as if strength and dominance might provide a solution. It never does, in the long run. The route forward is by building personal responsibility and self-discipline, and Adam Cox helps to build this new outlook on life in this episode, rejecting 'the warrior' as the route to power and showing how to dispel intrusive, obsessive thoughts about seizing control.

This Is Money: How much further could house prices fall?
House prices will continue to fall, says an influential poll of estate agents. The latest survey by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors found that buyer demand is declining and fewer homes are coming to the market. Meanwhile, Halifax’s latest house price figures show a £14,000 drop compared to the recent peak in August 2022 and 4.7% fall in the year to the end of September, the largest since 2009. So, how much further could they fall and are buyers in danger of trying to time the market? Will there be a big pause before a general election next year? Georgie Frost, Simon Lambert and Lee Boyce discuss the age old favourite of house prices. Last week has also seen the Bank of England sound the alarm over 35 year mortgages – should we be concerned? Skipton Building Society launches a headline mortgage rate of 3.35%. What’s the catch? It comes as its rival Nationwide has new best buy home loan rates. Could mortgage deals continue to fall? And we look at the top up-and-coming areas for first-time buyers: Does your area make the cut? Spoiler: it features Hull, Middlesbrough and Ipswich. DIY investors went on a gilt-buying spree in September - shunning the stock market and savings accounts. The UK government bonds were paying as little as 0.125% last month – so why were they getting involved? Hargreaves Lansdown is launching a basic, no-frills pension for those who want an easy way to invest for retirement but aren’t quite sure how to get started. They are the first SIPP provider to give details after regulators said they had to offer customers a 'default' option by the start of December. Will it make SIPPs sexy enough to the self-employed? Shrinkflation, bogus loyalty card savings and variable prices in supermarkets... we’re fed up with the lot of them. Are you?

The Bigger Picture: Labour to the right of the Tories, are we facing a financial crisis & the revolt against Net Zero
Professor Tim Evans of Middlesex University looks at Labour's move to the right of the Tories on housing and the NHS and feels it could become the natural party of government in the biggest seismic shift in UK politics since the early 20th century. He considers whether the world is hurtling towards a global financial crisis. And he assesses the growing public revolt around Europe against Net Zero, finding himself puzzled that no government appears to have carried out any costings in advance of such policies being announced.
