The charity is under fire after a ‘Panorama’ exposé, but the laws governing investments are complex

Around 10 years ago, I opened an account with the Co-operative Bank. I was attracted by its policy of not lending money at excessive rates of interest to the very poor and staying out of the way of arms deals and the like. It seemed by far the best of a bad bunch in the sense that it appeared to have morals. At around the same time, in a feeble anti-capitalist campaign, I joined the Phone Co-operative and an energy supplier called Ecotricity, which apparently supplies its power via windmills.

“Everything that makes Britain great can be found right here in Northumberland,” announced Robson Green at the start of his new ITV series, Tales from Northumberland. It was a bold claim – do they even have a Nando's? – but this proud son of Hexham is so enthusiastic about the land that stretches from north of Newcastle to the Scottish border that we should give him the chance to prove it. And while Robson takes an eight-week trip around his home county, his accent will apparently be roving the length and breadth of the nation. Last night it took in West Kensington and Tyneside, plus a brief stop in County Down.

With her glossy black hair and glamorous red sari, Dr Nayna Patel swept on to our screens last night like a movie star – a particularly bossy movie star. In fact, she's the IVF practitioner at the centre of India's $1bn-a-year commercial surrogacy industry. At her clinic and dormitory in Gujarat, she not only oversees the pregnancies of 100 women at a time, but also likes to weigh in on many other aspects of their personal lives: what they should spend their fee on, what skills they should learn, and whether they should kick that no-good husband out on to the street. So was Dr Nayna an evil capitalist exploiting the desperate for her own gain? Or a pioneering scientist and feminist crusader to boot?
