Ricky Ross talks to politician and founder of the Respect Party, George Galloway, about his background, his political career and his time in the Big Brother house.

Ricky will also be discussing the morality of taxation - should high earners have to pay the 50 per cent tax rate?

Reporter Paul Saunders visits the Isle of Arran where the Brown family opened their spectacular gardens to raise funds for their local church. And we hear from Stained Glass artist Claire Mulholland about her new work for a tiny chapel on a windswept hill in North Wales.

Sally Magnusson shares her memories of Songs of Praise as it celebrates its 50th anniversary.

And Ricky is joined by Cutting Edge Theatre Company's Suzanne Lofthus as she prepares for The Glasgow Passion 2011 - a modern interpretation of the last days of Jesus - being performed in Glasgow's George Square next week.
