Forgiveness

The first in a series of four programmes for the Easter season presented by Dr Tom Wright, the Bishop of Durham.

Inspired by Schubert's bleak song-cycle Winter Journey, he takes us on a spiritual journey in the opposite direction, reflecting in words and music on the problems and challenges which confront society today.

The starting point of the first programme is the extraordinary renaissance in South Africa over the past 15 years, and the possibility that similar new starts could happen elsewhere.

Tom Wright illustrates his theme with music by Mozart, Brahms and the Afrikaans composer Hans Roosenschoon.
