This Is Money: From inflation to investing mistakes - Best of the best from 2021
It's safe to say 2021 has been an eventful one for the economy and personal finance – and This Is Money has covered it all. Georgie Frost takes a look back at some of the best bits of the show starring Simon Lambert, Lee Boyce, Tanya Jefferies and Helen Crane. We talk about investing mistakes and what you can learn from them. How much a lifetime will cost? And what is behind the inflation surge that emerged in the last few months of the year? There is a bit about house prices – naturally – and we chat over our £1bn underpaid state pension victory. And we have a Dragon in the house. Simon catches up with new Dragons' Den star Steven Bartlett, who has a hugely successful podcast of his own. He talks through his views on the traditional route to success and why it is outdated. Happy New Year!

The Business of Film: Spider-Man - No Way Home, Louis Wain & Swan Song
James Cameron-Wilson looks at the latest state of UK cinema where Spider-Man: No Way Home is shattering box office records, with a US take of $253m. It's Tom Holland's 6th outing as the webslinger. He was engaged rather than stirred but loved The Electrical Life of Louis Wain w. Benedict Cumberbatch, out on New Year's Day. He found Swan Song, a futuristic domestic drama wonderful and very intelligent.
