The Bigger Picture: Labour & Housing, Immigration & the Battle for the Future of Money
Professor Tim Evans of Middlesex University says that Labour's ideas are becoming clearer, with Starmer's promise to boost housebuilding outmanoeuvring the Conservatives and setting the cat among the pigeons. He discusses whether immigration is out of control in a world where people are moving more than ever and explains why he thinks Labour will take exactly the opposite stance to the Tories. And he picks up on a largely unreported comment by Donald Trump, that America will eventually default on its debt, to highlight the battle that is looming over the future of money and the banking system.

The Business of Film: Book Club 2, Brainwashed – Sex, Camera, Power & The Mother

The Business of Film: Book Club 2, Brainwashed – Sex, Camera, Power & The Mother
James Cameron-Wilson takes Simon Rose through the latest box office charts, with Guardians of the Galaxy 3 still ruling the roost, though down 56%. Book Club 2: The Next Chapter is #4 with Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen and Mary Steenburgen. James found it awful and surprisingy smutty, treating the elderly as alcoholic bubblebrains. He found Brainwashed: Sex - Camera - Power fascinating, being a persuasive documentary about how cinema technique has disempowered and objectified women. He found action thriller The Mother, with Jennifer Lopez, utterly implausible and pointless.

There's an extinction level event camper trailer to keep you safe in the event of a Zombie Apocalypse, a gadget to make sea water drinkable, a wheeled suitcase that is supposed to operate your hotel aircon, lights & TV while a US company is giving away free tellies in return for bombarding you with ads. There are claims that Uber charges more if your phone battery is low while American scientists have found that airborne DNA is sufficient to identify people.

Thought for the Week: Tip of the Iceberg
'Stop the boats' calls the UK Prime Minister, but there's no linking of his short-term strategy to the big global issues which are driving migration: conflict, poverty and climate change. That's why the Archbishop of Canterbury called for a new approach in the House of Lords last Wednesday, seeking to tackle the causes rather than just the symptoms, and calling for a long-term perspective to address these challenges. This episode contains his full speech in parliament. Background music: 'Freedom' by Dan Lebowitz

This Is Money: How high will interest rates go — and why are they still going up?

This Is Money: How high will interest rates go — and why are they still going up?
And there it was, another interest rate hike. Another quarter point move up seems almost commonplace now, but cast your mind back to the era after the financial crisis and we had to wait nearly ten years for the base rate to climb above its 0.5% 'emergency level'. It cut first and then base rate got all the way to the heady heights of 0.75%, before it was cut again when Covid hit. Yet, less than 18 months since the Bank of England started raising rates in December 2021, base rate has rocketed from 0.1% to 4.5%. The rate itself is still relatively low in historic terms, but the magnitude of the rise is not. So, are the Bank's ratesetters right to keep voting for hikes, has the full pain been felt yet, and why would you do this when all the forecasts suggest inflation is soon to nosedive? Georgie Frost, Tanya Jefferies and Simon Lambert discuss the latest rate rise and how high interest rates will go. Plus, is the return of the 100% mortgage absolute madness, a helping hand for trapped renters, or something in the middle of all that? Why people should claim pension credit or help their friends or relatives? And finally, not only will it lack the crisp one-liners of Succession, but an inheritance drama is not something you want to get into, so how can people avoid one?

The Business of Film: Guardians of the Galaxy 3, Rodeo & Lunana – A Yak in the Classroom
With UK box office up 80%, James Cameron-Wilson waxes lyrical about Guardians of the Galaxy 3 which he found great fun throughout and impressively inventive. He also recommended two films using non-professional actors. Rodeo (#32) is an impressive insight into the lives of dirt bikers, almost their version of Fast & Furious and is on Curzon screens and at home. Oscar-nominated Lunana: A Yak in the Classroom is an utterly absorbing Bhutanese film about a teacher sent to a remote community. James also discusses a 2016 Italian film which has already been remade 20 times, with the French version, Nothing to Hide, on Netflix.
