This week's programme is a special edition from Glasgow examining the state of religion in Scotland

Edward speaks to the new Archbishop of St Andrews and Edinburgh, Leo Cushley, who will replace the disgraced Cardinal Keith O'Brien, to find out what his vision is for the future of the Catholic Church in Scotland.

But what kind of church will the new Archbishop inherit? Our reporter Gavin Walker investigates.

Brother Guy Consolmagno is the Pope's astronomer, but what is the relationship between the Vatican and science? Edward meets him at the Jesuit Centre in Edinburgh to find out.

The Pensions Minister, Steve Webb, recently declared that "God must be a Liberal". As the Liberal Democrats gather in Glasgow for their annual conference we find out why he believes this to be true.
Passage from India is a charity who are working to combat poverty with support from the Church of Scotland. Edward meets the volunteers in Glasgow to discover how a journey to India inspired them.

John Curtice, Tom Gallagher and Sally Foster-Fulton debate the state of religion in Scotland and the role that it may play in the run up to the referendum on independence.
