This Remembrance Sunday on Sunday Morning, with me, Cathy Macdonald, my guest for the whole of the first hour is a woman, who, until her retirement earlier this year, was at the reins of the Church of Scotland Guild.

Alison Twaddle spent over a decade within the Church of Scotland, doing everything possible to help the marginalized and disenfranchised members of our society. Then two years ago, she got some unexpected news about her health - it was to change her life. It's a fascinating story and one you won't want to miss.

Naturally on this special Sunday in November we honour and remember those who died in battle , but we'll also be hearing how important it is to remember those who've suffered life changing injuries, in more recent conflicts like Iraq and Afghanistan. Bob Dickson talks with with Sergeant Gary Jamieson who lost both legs and an arm in Afghanistan, you can hear part of the interview below and the full interview can be heard on Sunday's show.

And celebrating BBC Radio Scotland's Education Season, there's news of a project in one of Edinburgh's Primary Schools which supports parents in raising children with confidence helping them to do the best they can for their children during those important early, formative years.

And we'll be taking a look at BBC2's award winning comedy "Rev", which is back for a second series.

All that, plus a great mix of music, and all you have to do is sit back and enjoy it.
