1968 was a year of tumult and protest. It was also the year Elvis Presley found freedom, and his soul. As we approach the 50th anniversary of the King’s Comeback Special, Simon Goddard explains why it was a seminal moment

-Ishbel Holmes was abandoned, homeless and abused. On an epic cycle around the world to make sense of her life she met a kindred spirit – a lame, wounded street dog named Lucy – who changed everything.

-When The Rock has to leap off a tall building on to a moving car, Myles Humphus is the man he calls. Why the life of a stunt double is all about slipping under the radar.

-David Attenborough’s war on plastic and the heatwave have led to a big rethink on free public access to drinking water. Do you know where you can get yours? We investigate.

The Big Issue

The Big Issue’s own-brand products support the creation of a range of work-based opportunities for disadvantaged people.
The Big Issue has spent over 27 years at the helm of self-help revolution. It all began with the launch of The Big Issue magazine in 1991, which was created to offer homeless and disadvantaged people the opportunity to earn a legitimate income by selling a magazine on the streets. Since then over 200 million copies magazine have been sold by over 100,000 people. Vendors buy the magazine upfront for £1.25 and sell it on to the public for £2.50, and in doing so each runs their own micro-enterprise. In 2005 Big Issue Invest was launched, with the aim of extending The Big Issue’s mission by financing the growth of social enterprises and charities across the UK. To date the organisation has directly invested in over 350 such organisations, and manages or advises on more than £170 million of social funds.
