Beyond The Sting Of Death

Early this year, the Catholic Bishop of East Anglia, Michael Evans, told his diocese that his doctors had only given him weeks to live.

He knows that this Holy Week and Easter will, in all probability, be his last.

Michael Ford talks to Bishop Evans to find out how he is preparing for death, and what the message of Easter - the resurrection hope - means to him.

We also hear from Sheila Cassidy, a doctor and psychotherapist who has come close to death both professionally and personally.

And we meet Mehboob Sher, a young Muslim from Pakistan who has lost all fear of death after surviving a bomb blast in Peshawar in 2009.
