    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.

    Confession, we’re told, is good for the soul, and churches have rituals for this. But what difference do they make? Does the process, as some argue, simply make people feel better about going out to do the same things again? Does confessing actually change either individuals or communities? And what about those who can’t accept any religious package, but feel they need to get things off their chest?
