    If ISIS came to your town would you turn the other cheek or pick up a gun? We'll ask if Christian pacifism makes any sense in the wake of what many regard as a genocide in Iraq. Plus prisons are not fit for purpose, and they're failing prisoners and society, says former MP Denis MacShane. The Archbishop of Armagh tells Lord Carey he is wrong about Assisted Dying. And as the new Star Wars Movie is filmed on Skellig Michael, one theologian says the Force is with us.

  • What is a War Crime?

    Everyone seems to have a view about what's currently happening in Gaza and Israel. As the death toll rises, the tone of the language of the public debate has also escalated towards allegations that war crimes have been committed. But what exactly is a war crime? What kind of evidence is necessary to prove that a war crime has been committed in any conflict, and, if that evidence is forthcoming, what are the chances that anyone is likely to face prosecution? William is joined by Dr Kevin Heller, Professor of Criminal Law at the University of London, and Anthony Julius, deputy chairman of the top law firm Mishcon de Reya. William also talks to Lord Kilclooney on the Isreali/Gaza conflict.
