Great British Bake Off – the mighty bouche returns!

Bake Off is back! It may have migrated to Channel 4, but all the ingredients are still present. This week, the mightiest bouche, new presenter Noel Fielding, dishes out the secrets; and we look and at how some cracking social enterprises are using food for good.

Also this week:

Steven Soderbergh has turned his back on the big-time studios for his new movie, Logan Lucky – could this signal the death toll for Hollywood? We speak to the legendary filmmaker.

Over in Norway, as the stands begin to fill-up for the kick off of this year’s Homeless World Cup, we look how this wonderful competition turns some of the most vulnerable men and women in society into national heroes.

In Letter To My Younger Self, broadcaster and iconic foreign correspondent John Simpson tells how he wishes he’d spent less time on work, and more time with his daughter.

And more.

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 £1.50 and sell it on to the public for £3.00, 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.
