05David Ervine20060707

He is one of the most courageous architects of conflict resolution in Northern Ireland.

He spent 6 years in prison on explosives charges in the 1970s and 80s, but now, as a politician, he is widely recognised as a man whose words and actions are meant to ensure Northern Ireland does not return to that kind of violence.

He has encouraged his community to separate politics from religion and to support a modern form of non-sectarian unionism ""free from the Pope, the Queen and King Billy"".

What changed him? How easy was it to change? And how much does he see the people of Northern Ireland really changing? What lessons are there for Scotland in his approach? Direct speaking, no nonsense grilling by Lesley Riddoch for half an hour.

Pius Ncube is Archbishop of Bulawayo in Zimbabwe and perhaps the most outspoken of Robert Mugabes many critics.

He has just won the Robert Burns Humanitarian Award for 2005, yet he prays for the day that the Zimbabwean President dies and does not see this as an un-Christian act.

What changed him from a quiet, obedient church leader into a thorn in the side of a dangerous regime, and why does he put himself at such risk when so many others keep quiet about what is happening in Zimbabwe? Direct speaking, no nonsense grilling by Lesley Riddoch for half an hour.
