Vaping was sold to us as a way of quitting smoking – but with one in seven of the UK’s 18-24-year-olds vaping in 2023, and half of them having never smoked a cigarette before, the government’s recent announcement of a ban on disposable vapes was mostly welcomed. But what about illegal vapes? Presenter (and vaper) Jordan North informs us that recent research has found that 29% of them contain lead. He faces some hard truths about his habit.

All of Us Strangers (Andrew Haigh, 2024), Disney+

Andrew Haigh’s latest film is already a strong contender for the best of the year. It tells an emotionally complex tale of regret and redemption, woven with elements of fable. The main character, Adam, played brilliantly by Andrew Scott, is a introverted gay screenwriter who lives alone in a tower block. To find inspiration, he returns to his childhood home where he encounters the ghosts of his parents, who tragically died in a car crash when he was 12. Along the way, he also meets Harry, played by Paul Mescal, and the two begin a tentative romance. Through these experiences, Adam is able to come out of his shell and reflect on his past, his sexuality, and his present. While heart-wrenching, the film leaves viewers with a sense of hope.
