First broadcast:
Sunday 11 September 2011

Ricky's first hour guest is one of the most colourful characters of Scottish politics in recent years - the evergreen Robin Harper. He joins Ricky to talk about his formative years in Orkney (and Kenya!), his faith and of course his passion for Green issues.
Ten years on, reporter Bob Dickson speaks with those affected by the September 11th attacks.
We also hear from one American Presbyterian minister about his memory of the immediate aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, and his subsequent choice to leave his Minneapolis parish . and move to the Pollok area of Glasgow.
And in the week parliament discussed a bill to outlaw behaviour deemed to incite hatred on religious or racial grounds, and 16 years after the death of his son Mark in a sectarian attack, Niall Scott talks to Ricky about the Foundation he and his wife set up in Mark's memory. You can find out more about that Foundation at markscottleadershipforlifeaward.co.uk. And we discuss why so many churches lose their young people as they approach their teenager years, and ask what can be done to encourage teenagers to stay involved with the church?
All this along with Ricky's usual great mix of music, and if you want to contact Ricky on the show email SundayMorningWith@bbc.co.uk.
