    Just what is so special about humans when we share much of our genetic material with animals, and when animals would appear to experience very similar emotions to us? Can we still claim 'dominion' over the animal world? And will my dog get to heaven? Roy Jenkins discusses some of the greater and lesser theological questions concerning our relationship with animals. His guests include Dr Helen Hall of the Anglian Society for Animal Welfare, evangelical theologian Dr Stephen Vantassel, Hindu theologian Akhandadhi Das, and Clair Linzey of the Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics.

    It's fifty years this month since the march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama. It was a key event in the struggle for civil rights in the United States. The film Selma is currently introducing a new generation to that movement - and to its key figure, Martin Luther King Jr. Roy Jenkins asks whether or not his way of non-violent resistance has been vindicated, and what lessons still need to be learned both in the States and much nearer to home. Roy's guests include Revd. Dr Karen Smith, Revd Kim Fabricius, and Revd. Dr Joe Aldred.
