Unlicensed and off-the-leash, this is City A.M. Unregulated. A no-holds-barred, uncensored look at the stories breaking the news and the markets across the globe.

There was one story that dominated the news this week, after not one but two retailers were forced to call in the administrators.

After a difficult few days on the high-street Unregulated's regular presenter, Zak Mirs is joined by breaking news editor at City A.M. Catherine Neilan to discuss whether BHS and Austin Reed going under could be a bad sign for the future of bricks and mortar, or whether some high streets are still paved with gold.

Director of retail research at Mintel Richard Perks and Justin Urquhart Stewart of Seven Investment Management give their view - which might surprise you, given the big brands that have gone down this week.
