Money Box at 40

On the programme's 40th birthday, a look at deals made by comparison websites that push up the cost of insurance and the cost for small businesses to set up pensions.

We explore why so called 'most favoured nation' clauses used by comparison websites could be pushing up the cost of some insurance.

Why are some small businesses spending hundreds of pounds setting up workplace pensions when they could be doing it for free?

And we're celebrating 40 years of Money Box by looking at how financial education has changed in this period.
