Join Richard this week as he explores the subject of forgiveness. His first hour guest will be Richard Moore, who was shot and blinded, aged 10, during one of Northern Ireland's worst years of The Troubles. He tells Richard how he later met and forgave the soldier who shot him.

Richard will also discuss how major faiths define forgiveness, in the company of Rabbi Mark Solomon and theologian Elizabeth Templeton.

Marina Cantacuzino explains how her Forgiveness Project had developed into a platform to give people opportunities to explore issues around forgiveness and tell their own personal stories, including an interview with Jo Berry about her own personal story of forgiving and moving on.

Julie Nicholson, whose daughter Jenny died in the terrorist attacks in London in 2005, stepped down as a parish priest because she could not forgive the perpetrators. She talks to Richard about how the events have led her on a journey of discovery about the meaning of forgiveness.
