Electric cars, vintage TV adverts, the diet industry

You and Yours has been carrying out its own research into electric cars and their charging points. So just how much have councils across the UK spent on these charging points and do we use them. Also in the programme, we hear from a listener who spent £400 on a shopping discount membership, without even realising it.

We're also talking about diets, and whether or not they work. And do you remember the 80s TV advert for Fruit Pastilles? The one with the basketball player trying to impress a young lad with his nifty footwork and ball skills? It's being played again in all its original glory. We explore why 30 year old adverts are on the telly now.
