Cryptocurrency : Has The Bubble Burst ? | Channel 4 9 August 2022

Junior Bake Off | Channel 4 28 January 5:00pm
Ade Adepitan finds out how to make money in the high-stakes crypto market – and how easy it is to lose it all. An estimated three million Brits have invested in cryptocurrency. But many of us – like Ade – don’t really understand how it works. To discover how crypto can make you rich and how to avoid its many pitfalls, Ade seeks advice from people with very different experiences of the crypto world – the believers and the sceptics. Ade even invests some of his own hard-earned cash, unaware that the cryptocurrency market is about to undergo a massive crash. Is this the end of the cryptocurrency dream? Or is it just a temporary downturn in this volatile new market? On a country estate in the Cotswolds, Ade meets multi-millionaire Jon Joseph Bourgerie, who is so convinced that crypto is the future of money, he’s sunk $1 million into it. In east London, Ade visits 23-year-old grime artist Tarm, who says crypto changed his life. But not everyone is convinced that crypto is a force of good. Ex-City trader Gary Stevenson thinks crypto is a dangerous pyramid scheme: ‘People who buy Lamborghinis with crypto, they put it on Instagram; and people who lose their life savings don’t.’ And lawyer Charlotte Hill warns of the high risk of being scammed in the crypto market.

The Supervet : Noel Fitzpatrick | Channel 4 12 August 2022

The Supervet : Noel Fitzpatrick | Channel 4 12 August
Series 17 Episode 4

The brand-new series of The Supervet concludes, showcasing the extraordinary work of veterinary surgeon Professor Noel Fitzpatrick and his team at his unique veterinary specialist practice. In this episode, we meet one-year-old bouncy golden retriever Bertie, who has a special relationship with mum Rachel, who found him eight months after being widowed. Bertie developed a dislocated hip joint and curvature of his spine at just 10 weeks old and is in a lot of pain. Noel faces two challenges: to find an implant to treat Bertie’s arthritis and prevent his hip from dislocating, and to manage the effect of Bertie’s spinal deformity over time. Noel creates a custom-made hip socket to fit Bertie’s unusual shape, but the stakes are high. If surgery fails, Rachel may have to face saying goodbye to her soulmate. Trusty Tibetan terrier, nine-year-old Sunny, originally came to Fitzpatricks after previous knee surgery elsewhere had failed. Noel identified multiple problems affecting the connective tissue of both Sunny’s knee and wrist joints, rendering him almost immobile. Noel performs a total knee replacement on the right side using an implant system he developed, called a rotating hinge. The initial operation is successful, and a second procedure is planned after a three-month recovery period. But suddenly, on the verge of the operation, Noel discovers a flare-up of the auto-immune inflammatory arthritis in Sunny’s carpi, which casts a dark cloud over his future once again. Edith, an enthusiastic four-year-old springer spaniel and sock stealer extraordinaire, hurt her back two years ago and, despite no definitive diagnosis from numerous other vets, mums Val and Tara are convinced she is masking a problem. With the aid of a unique mechanism of performing dynamic MRI scans, which Noel developed, the team at Fitzpatricks can mimic the position of her lower back when she is in a jumping position, which reveals the cause of the problem: a bulging disc is compressing nerve roots in Edith’s spine and causing significant sciatic nerve pain. Val and Tara decide to opt for surgery, and one of Noel’s hugely successful inventions, a Christmas tree-shaped spacer screw, opens up the disc space between the vertebrae at the lumbosacral junction. Noel uses screws, clamps and rods to fuse Edith’s vertebrae, keeping the holes for the nerves open. Val and Tara have an anxious wait to find out whether Edith may be finally free from pain.
