Sunday Sequence, 3rd September 2017

The world seems closer to nuclear war than at any other time since the fall of the Berlin Wall. Has the moral debate changed? We talk to Bruce Kent, one of the founders of CND, and discuss the ethics of nuclear warfare with war veteran, Major General Patrick Cordingley, theologian Elaine Storkey and Queen's University academic, Leon Litvak.  Former Presbyterian Moderator, the Rev Dr John Dunlop, defines slavery in the 21st century. We hear the ancient lingo - known as Shelta, Gammon or Caint - of the Travelling People. Deann John Mann says goodbye to Belfast. Clifford Longley remembers Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor, who died this week. Michael Kelly, editor of the Irish Catholic, talks about the books that speak to his soul - Nuala O'Faolain's "Are You Somebody?";  "The End of Eddy" by Edouard Louis;  "One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich" by Alexander Solzhenitsyn.
