The Bigger Picture: 100 Years of the Culture War, Does Aukus herald a new global order, why more are paying for healthcare
Professor Tim Evans of Middlesex University looks at 100 years of the Culture War, as expounded in a new book by Frank Ferudi. He wonders if the Aukus pact is a sign of a new global order and discusses why the French are so very angry about it. And with NHS waiting lists approaching 6 million, he considers the ramifications for socialised healthcare of a growing number of people without health insurance deciding to pay for operations.

The Business of Film: Rose Plays Julie, Kate & Johnny Guitar
James Cameron-Wilson examines the UK box office, depressed by a lack of any new big films ahead of the new James Bond film, No Time To Die. Stylish Irish film Rose Plays Julie arrived at #30 in the chart, though James still recommends last week's Irish entry Herself, now at #15. With nothing else new to get his teeth into, James recommends the Netflix film Kate, starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Woody Harrelson, despite a somewhat derivative thriller plot. He also feels the 1954 Joan Crawford film Johnny Guitar, long held to be a camp classic, deserves a higher reputation; it is now out in a restored edition on DVD and Blu-Ray.

Gadgets & Gizmos: Sir Clive Sinclair, Tesla's whoopee cushion & an IgNobel decongestant alternative
Share Radio's technology editor Steve Caplin pays tribute to the inventiveness of the late Sir Clive Sinclair, inventor of the pocket calculator among other things - even though he always used a slide rule. He gives a Tesla a test drive, including its built-in whoopee cushion, admires a new microcar, looks forward to streets lit by glow-in-the-dark plants, explains why the Lithuanian government is warning people about Xiaomi phones, recommends an auto cutout app and highlights the latest IgNobel Prizes, one of which says sex is better for clearing the nose than decongestant.

This Is Money: Could the inflation spike lead to stagflation - or is it the start of a growth spurt?
The cost of living jumped by the largest amount on record to hit 3.2 per cent in August – is it set to run out of control and prompt the Bank of England to raise interest rates? Meanwhile, a gloomy report has lead some economists to talk about stagflation once more. What is it, is it a threat and does it matter? This week, Simon Lambert, Lee Boyce and Georgie Frost discuss the 'flations' and what it could mean for the coming months, and the pandemic recovery. Alongside this, there are supply chain problems and staff shortages. Can we expect higher prices in shops and is Britain set for a hiring boom? It's not just shops that are suffering, soaring costs and tradesmen shortages are leaving families doing home improvements themselves - or stuck with half-finished renovations. And we go inside the pocket sized houses aimed at first time buyers in London. We left the cat at home: there wasn't enough room to swing it…

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: The 50th anniversary of the demise of Bretton Woods
Russ Mould, Investment Director of A J Bell, and a history buff, considers similarities between today's financial environment and the closing of the gold window by President Nixon in 1971, since when the dollar has lost 85% of its purchasing power. He explains why it might make sense to buy toys early for Christmas and why investors might want to pay attention to the level of margin debt in the United States (one of the frothy areas of the market), as it has just dipped for the first time since February 2020.
