from Northern Ireland celebrating the 60th Anniversary of BBC broadcasting in the Province.
Standing by the forbidding structure called the Peace Line that separates Catholic from Protestant in Belfast, Dr Colin Morris asks the question 'Are the churches really part of the solution to this problem, or are they part of the problem that is Northern Ireland?'
He talks to people whose faith refuses to be imprisoned by the past or conditioned by history.
And in Fisherwick Presbyterian Church in Belfast, religious divisions are forgotten as choirs of the Province sing their Songs of Praise.
