The Business of Film: Godzilla Minus One, Rustin & Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget
James Cameron-Wilson reports on the UK box office. Takings have dropped 25% but Wonka still rules. Godzilla Minus One is #2, a rare foreign language subtitled movie to ride high in the charts, though taking only £817,000. James found it a decent monster movie but no more. On Netflix, he thought Rustin, the real story of the gay civil rights activist, interesting despite much overacting. He was delighted, however, by Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget, which he reckoned not just the best animated movie of the year but one of the best movies of 2023 full stop.

Gadgets & Gizmos: Electric penny farthing, batteryless e-bike, iPhone security & the lost space tomato
Steve Caplin wows Simon Rose with the latest in the world of gadgets. Dr. Who at Christmas reduces the death rate. There's an electric penny farthing, a cargo e-bike with 3 wheels in a line and an e-bike with no battery. Lego modellers can make a 1977 Polaroid camera. Apple is to update security to reduce iPhone theft. 3D portraits go portable. The missing space tomato has been found. Cardboard can be recycled into a polystyrene alternative. And Hyundai's tyres can come with built-in snow chains, though only in video form so far.

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: Themes to watch for 2024

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: Themes to watch for 2024
Russ Mould of A J Bell suggests the themes investors should watch out for in 2024. Equity markets seem optimistic while the gilts market – with an inverted yield curve – suggests a recession is likely and the commodity markets seem completely confused. Debt, however, is the biggest issue in the world, creating a headache for central banks. China, France and, soon, the US will all be using 20% of tax income for meeting interest costs. Scary enough in itself, if there's a recession, tax income will drop while welfare payments will soar. In summary, whatever has driven the markets in the past 10 years may not work for the 10 years, but there will always be opportunities.

Thought for the Week: Respect for Others, not Solidarity, is what matters

Thought for the Week

Thought for the Week: Respect for Others, not Solidarity, is what matters
Christmas is with us again, celebrating the birth of Jesus over two thousand years ago. This year, however, it is overshadowed by the horrific events in the Middle East: so our Thought for Christmas includes a reference to Bishop Steven of Oxford looking across the millenia in his recent address (see link below), and our comments reflect the contrast between the yearning for solidarity (whether national or otherwise) and the failure to show respect for others, however different they may be. Background music: 'Erev Shel Shoshanim' by E's Jammy Jams Bishop of Oxford address: https://youtu.be/t0_IhB4LMNE?si=C9bHOvwUR5Y4lfZA

This Is Money: How fast will interest rates fall - and where's the new normal?
The Bank of England has reached the peak with interest rates in this cycle. That's the firm view of the markets and most analysts, despite three members of the nine-strong Monetary Policy Committee disagreeing and voting for a rate hike this week. The question has now shifted from how high will rates go, to when will they be cut? The boldest predictions are for more than 1% to be shaved off the base rate next year. Does that fit with the Bank's 'hawkish hold' of the base rate this week? Georgie Frost, Lee Boyce and Simon Lambert look at what next for interest rates both here and in the US - and whether markets are running away with themselves. Plus, two years after they finally started to properly rise, what does heading back to a point where rates may fall mean for borrowers, savers and investors? Also on this week's show, is it better to use the central heating or an electric heater, the 'better' plan for a state pension triple-lock replacement, and the reasons Lee wants you to get in touch. And make sure you listen to find out why the team want to know how long your kettle takes to boil...
