This week on Sunday Morning with me, Cathy Macdonald, my special guest is poet, linguist and Salvation Army member John Coutts. He'll be talking about his faith and how it's taken him around the globe.

And there's a cultural thread running through the second hour of the programme, as we celebrate the re-release of the film Chariots of Fire in cinemas this week. Based on the story of Scottish Athlete Eric Liddell, we'll be featuring his daughter Patricia as she shares her memories of her father.

As a new ITV reality show scours the nation in search of the perfect Jesus, Rev Owain Jones and Theatre Critic Neil Cooper discuss the enduring appeal of Jesus Christ Super Star. Will it engage the public's imagination with religion and reach out to a whole new generation?

In Aberdeen a lavishly illustrated medieval book of animals that once belonged to Henry the Eighth goes on display for the first time. Professor Jane Geddes discusses some of the moral messages behind the amazing images.

Plus, a day in the life of a grave cleaner. Find out why one man loves tending to graves for families who aren't in the country to do it themselves.

There's another selection from the Listening project , an emotional conversation between two women and their experiences of post natal depression - and a poem from Ginea-Bissau in the Written World collection, and together with a great blend of music, it's well worth tuning in to Sunday Morning with me, Cathy Macdonald.
