Gadgets & Gizmos: The dangers of Excel, googling Graham Norton and making tea wrongly
Technology editor Steve Caplin looks at the dangers of using Excel for sophisticated projects such as the Test and Trace Fiasco, but also other multi-billion pound blunders. He hopes flying taxis will be buzzing around the 2024 Paris Olympics, admires the chutzpah of Valencia's ventriloquistic bid to be European Capital of Innovation, points out the dangers of searching online for celebrities like Graham Norton - with scammers lying in wait - and looks at a study that says we've all been making tea wrongly for years.

This is Money: Can we keep our lockdown savings habit?
Lockdown Britain has produced a nation of savers, ONS figures showed this week, with people salting away almost 30% of their disposable income on average. But for those hoping that we might finally have got the savings habit, there’s a catch. Those figures cover April to June, a three-month period when most shops were shut, along with pubs, restaurants, hotels and B&Bs, and going on holiday was a near-impossible task. Deprived of the opportunity to spend, Britain put money aside instead – but is not spending the same as saving? On this week’s podcast, Simon Lambert, Lee Boyce and Georgie Frost dive into the lockdown saving phenomenon and look at what triggered it, whether there was anything other than an inability to spend that drove saving so much higher than in previous recessions and how the paradox of thrift plays out. They also look at where people can put the money they have set aside – with interest on savings deals negligible – and whether the sudden imposition of a savings habit bodes well for people building up better nest eggs when life gets back to normal.Some won’t have been so lucky in lockdown, however, with job losses mounting. The team look at how this affects those already committed to moving home. And finally, are brand new mobile phones a waste of money? Chasing the latest handset is an expensive game, but a new breed of cheap but high quality phones are changing the minds of some of those committed to holding onto old ones.

The Business of Film: Weathering With You, The Social Dilemma & The Great Buster
James Cameron-Wilson laments the nervousness of the film studios in holding back new movies from the nation's cinemas, starved of new product. With no new films to see on the big screen, he raves about Japanese animated movie Weathering With You, out on DVD and Blu-ray and is equally excited by Netflix's The Social Dilemma, a frightening and thought-provoking documentary about the dangers of social media. He also recommends The Great Buster: A Celebration, a documentary about the great silent comedian Buster Keaton.
