William Crawley and his guests debate the week's religious and ethical news and explore the world of culture and ideas. Including News.


    Last Thursday night three protestant church leaders held a public meeting with about 150 protesters in Mountpottinger Presbyterian church in East Belfast. William was there for Sunday Sequence and spoke to the Presbyterian Moderator Dr Roy Patton, the Bishop of Down and Dromore Bishop Harold Miller, and the Methodist President the Rev Ken Lindsay.


    Is there a reliable roadmap to successfully coming out of conflict? Earlier this week Dr Donna Hicks, who teaches conflict resolution and International Affairs at Harvard University, was in Belfast giving a talk and meeting with politicians and community groups. She has spent nearly two decades facilitating dialogue between communities in the Middle East, Sri Lanka, Colombia, Cuba, and here in Northern Ireland. Her book ‘Dignity: The Essential Role it Plays in Resolving Conflict’ is published by Yale University Press.


    It's a long way from playing naked billiards in Las Vegas - this week Prince Harry was describing his role in the Afghan war and the reality of combat for a member of the X-Box generation. So has technology sanitised warfare? William speaks to former British Army officer Alan McFarland, Joe Glenton who refused to serve a second tour in Afghanistan on legal and moral grounds, and political activist and Eamonn McCann.


    Alyse Nelson, head of Vital Voices pays tribute to Veteran trade unionist and human rights campaigner Inez McCormick who passed away last week.
