Modern Mindset: Front of Mind Inspiration
Adam Cox is joined by TV presenter Julia Kendell – of 60 Minute Makeover and DIY SOS fame – and Andrew Weiss, Chairman of BHETA, the trade body for the home improvement industry. They talk about how the popularity of the home improvement shows of the 90s and early noughties saw a massive trend for people to improve their homes. The change in focus from DIY shows to today’s cooking and baking shows has seen a decline in the popularity of home improvement – so, how can we encourage millennials to get back into the art of DIY?

This is Moneyball

This is Moneyball: England football legend Shaun Wright Phillips on money in the game, US soccer and how to tackle racism
It is 2019 – and yet we still haven't managed to kick racism out of football. We had the England vs Montenegro incident last month, distasteful incidents in Italy - and last weekend, closer to home, in the Championship. England international Danny Rose says he can't wait to 'get out' of the game altogether – what can be done? Assistant editor Lee Boyce and broadcaster Georgie Frost are joined in the studio this week by former Chelsea, Manchester City and England winger Shaun Wright Phillips for his views. Are players given enough support by clubs, do clubs and fans need to do more to finally stamp it out and can the Premier League really tackle the matter in house by throwing cash at the problem? Shaun also gives his views on football agents after it was revealed £211m was spent on agent fees between February 2017 and January 2018, while expert Darren Bailey explains their role. He also lifts the lid on what life was like at two clubs who saw investment pour in when he played for them – Chelsea and Manchester City. Shaun also reveals whether he'd like to get into football management, why players are told to watch what they say and how he lived in Bradley's basement in the Big Apple… for five months.

The Business of Film: Shazam!
James Cameron-Wilson runs his eye down the UK box office chart, with age-shift superhero movie Shazam! pushing Dumbo from the front spot, a new Pet Semetary at #3 and French-directed western The Sisters Brothers clocking in at #9. Out for home release is Mary Poppins Returns, which will no doubt fly off the shelves and 1952 Finnish classic The White Reindeer, which might have a little more trouble getting into the air.
