Tonight's programme is about forgiveness - as it applies to crime.
Is there too much emphasis on understanding and forgiving the offender and too little on the victim?
Does our ability to forgive depend on seeing 'just' punishment meted out? Are some crimes just too heinous for us ever to forgive? In the audience are parents of murder victims who say they can never forgive.
The discussion is chaired by Rabbi Julia Neuberger with John Stalker , former Deputy Chief Constable of Greater
Manchester, Terence Morris , Professor of Social
Institutions at London
University, Jimmy Boyle , convicted murderer, and Lady Ewart-Biggs, widow of the British Ambassador to
Ireland murdered by the IRA in 1976. Studio director SIMON HAMMOND Assistant producer ALEX LAIRD Producer PATTI STEEPLES
