Sunday Morning with Cathy Macdonald 11 Dec 2011
This week on the Sunday Morning show, I will be spending the first hour in the company of legendary music label founder and former policeman, Ian Green. Twenty five years after retiring from the force, and ploughing most of his pension into setting up Greentrax Records, I'll be asking him about his passion for preserving Scotland's musical heritage and promoting new artistes, and whether he appreciated the enormity of what he was taking on at the time.
If you've ever wondered what opportunities people with learning difficulties are given, to help them worship, and to find ways to communicate their faith, we'll be hearing about the work of an organisation called Prospects in Scotland.
The recent death of young football manager, Gary Speed, has once again, brought into focus, some of the pressures that footballers are under. I'll be talking to Scotland's youngest football chaplain, Stuart Coleman, to find out about his work and his role with Clyde FC
I'll be getting an insight into one of the worlds youngest religions, Bahai'ism, from a uniquely Hebridean perspective, as we explore the challenges that remote communities face, when getting tgether to practice their faith, and as they plan to celebrate the centenary of the Scottish visit of Abdul Baha who was the son of the faith's founder.
And with Christmas a mere fortnight away, we explore the practicalities of trying to explain to children and grandchildren that it is better to give than to receive.
