Presented by Winifred Robinson.

Paul Lewis, presenter of Radio 4's Money Box, examines the security of offshore accounts with Icelandic banks.

Cheap wine is now a regular feature of supermarket price wars, but most of what we are tempted to buy is just cheap rubbish according to wine writer Malcolm Gluck.

Winifred interviews Digby Jones, the former head of the CBI and advisor to Gordon Brown, on selling Britain abroad.

Actor Matt Fraser and artist Kathryn Rennie, both Thalidomide impaired, discuss an exhibition of portraits of Thalidomide victims.

Corinne Sweet, psychologist and eating disorder counsellor, discusses the adverts for Maltesers and Jaffa Cakes that have been banned for making misleading claims.

Radio stations in the Thames Valley area have been advertising the services of Speed and Son solicitors. Their claim to reduce prison sentences and provide guilt counselling for drivers caught speeding is really a road safety campaign in a very different guise. We speak to Dan Campsall of the Safer Roads Partnership.
