0:00 / 0:00

This week we discuss what the independent review into the Philip North/Bishop of Sheffield fiasco has discovered, and what it means for traditionalists in the Church of England. We also take a look at new research which suggests clergy are on the whole financially and emotionally doing OK, contrary to the headlines. Finally, we interview Sir Hector Sants, who is leading Justin Welby's drive to make the British economy and financial system fairer.
