The Business of Film: Beast, The Invitation & Memory
James Cameron-Wilson on the UK box office where no film took over a million for the first time since December 2020. Top of the charts is André Rieu's latest concert with rogue lion thriller Beast, starring Idris Elba, only taking £600,000 at #2. Dreadful horror film The Invitation limped in at #12. On Amazon Prime, James looked at Memory, a poor thriller starring Liam Neeson, directed by the once-great Martin Campbell.

Gadgets & Gizmos: Laser phone charging, sulphur batteries & facial recognition for salmon
Steve Caplin talks tech with Simon Rose.

There's also an idea for getting energy from waves, facial recognition for one type of salmon, how Surrey Police have been tricking drivers by manipulating Waze and an e-VTOL plane that can land in your garden – with an optional parachute.

Thought for the Week: Future generations left stranded by Baby Boomers

Thought for the Week

Thought for the Week: Future generations left stranded by Baby Boomers
Hardly a day goes by without yet more evidence of our approach to empowering the next generation being wholly dysfunctional; the gap between Baby Boomer and Millenial wealth is reaching record proprtions. Meanwhile, as President Biden made his bold move last week to cancel student debt, it provoked an explosive eruption of criticism from Wall Street Journal readers. Here in the UK, another initiative to help the young, the Child Trust Fund, has over £1 billion waiting to be claimed by young adults, almost all from low-income backgrounds, due to a lack of focus from Government. It's hard to avoid the conclusion that we are a selfish and short-sighted generation of ‘Baby Boomers’ — we need to stand back and take stock of our failure to empower coming generations.

This Is Money: Will the Government keep its state pension triple lock promise this time?
Inflation is soaring and if predictions are correct, it would result in the Consumer Prices Index measure hitting 13% this autumn. That could result in a state pension rise of around £1,000 a year to £10,900 while even at the current level of 10.1% it would be upped to £10,600. However, last year, the triple lock was scrapped. Would a new Prime Minister dare do the same this time around? Lee Boyce, Tanya Jefferies and Georgie Frost discuss. Inflation is hitting those with pensions in different ways, we explain how and Tanya unearths yet more errors at the DWP. She explains why – if you, or someone you know, was refused a state pension or given an unexpectedly low award when you turned 66 – it could be worth challenging. Data also suggests that some workers are opting out of private pensions or reducing contributions thanks to the rise in the cost-of-living. Is that a wise decision? Outside of pensions, we had calculations this week that inflation predictions are undercooked and could actually peak at 18.6% early next year, with base rate having to reach 7% to stop it. It comes as the energy price cap is now forecast to reach £5,500 in April 2023. And finally… the number of homes available to rent has halved in two years pushing prices through the roof. According to research, tenants are effectively losing a bedroom if they spend the same amount of money today on a property compared to two years ago. What next for the rental market?
