Cathy MacDonald Cathy MacDonald | 05:00 UK time, Sunday, 9 September 2012

This Sunday morning my guest is a man who has seen the world through a camera lens. He has travelled to some of the most volatile countries in the world as a photojournalist, but his focus on the disadvantaged and vulnerable has come at a personal cost. Join me in the company of photographer Don McCullin.

With the close of the Paralympic Games this weekend many people have had to question their perceptions of disability. But has it all been positive, and what will be the lasting impact? I'm joined by Professor John Swinton of Aberdeen University, and Susie Fitton of Capability Scotland.

Terry Waite is remembered by many as a hostage in Beirut for nearly 5 years in the late 1980s. He's used this experience to inform his role with the homeless charity Emmaus, and during a visit to Glasgow last week Sunday Morning caught up with him. Scottish artist Gerard Burns was also at that event to see his painting of The Road to Emmaus gifted to the charity, and he joins me to talk about the significance of that moment.

I will also be hearing about the book that's inspired the Moderator of the Church of Scotland, Albert Bogle. Listen in to find out what it is.

There's also the final poem in the Written World series. All this and the usual excellent selection of music, listen in between 7am-9pm this Sunday Morning With me, Cathy Macdonald.
