This week, my Sunday Morning guest is Marion Partington, whose sister, Lucy, was one of Fred and Rosemary West's victims. In the programme, she shares her journey of healing through prayer and meditation, and talks about what forgiving means to her.

'The Road from Crime' is an educational film that deals with how offenders can escape a life of crime and violence, and explains how hope is one of the most critical factors in breaking that insidious cycle. Professor of Criminology and Social work from the University of Glasgow Fergus McNeill and Pete White from Positive Prison, Positive Futures explain how we can help.

Mohammed Mursi from The Muslim Brotherhood is Egypt's newly elected President. Eugene Rogan who is an expert on Modern History of the Middle East explains the history of the party, and what they stand for today.

Hear all about 'The Coach House' - a hidden retreat near Inverness where people can explore profound questions about God, life and themselves.

And how important is our history to our identity? Genealogist Michael Tobias explains how he helped one man find a family member who had survived the holocaust. And Hilary Stoddart tells how piecing together her past to find her birth family changed her life.

Plus this weeks excerpt from The Listening Project, as well as the usual excellent selection of music, it's a good listen between 7am-9pm this Sunday Morning With Cathy Macdonald.
