Summary FINDING FORGIVENESSSunday's Dateline has a touching story of friendship between a woman who was shot and critically injured, and the stranger who attempted to kill her.Jackie Millar took years to recover after she was shot in the head. She remains almost blind and permanently brain damaged, unable to even remember bringing up her own sons. But she knows her own mind as far as her attacker, Craig Sussek, is concerned... she's forgiven him and regularly visits him in prison in Wisconsin in the United States, where they talk about their lives and his remorse at what happened that night in 1995.Some say she's mad... others that the Restorative Justice Project is the only way that both of them can get on with their lives.ELECTRIC DREAMSIsraeli entrepreneur Shai Agassi thinks he can turn the dream of mass-selling electric cars into reality...and he believes it's all going to happen in the space of a few years.Video journalist David Brill visits the heart of his Better Place company in Tel Aviv, where visitors are queuing up to try out the cars.But they also want to hear how he's going to tackle the problem of limited battery range, which has put the brakes on the electric car market until now.Agassi is already building a network of stations for recharging and switching batteries in Israel and Denmark, and now has Australia and the rest of the world in his sights. So does it finally spell the end for the world's dependence on oil? A NEW BEGINNING?The campaign for independence for the Basque region on the Spanish-French border has long divided European opinion, with separatist group ETA behind scores of deadly terrorist attacks in recent decades.It declared a ceasefire in January with hopes of a political breakthrough, but as video journalist David O'Shea reports on Sunday, there's still a long way to go before the two sides can make peace.O'Shea meets Jose 'Gatza' Sagardui, the man described by his supporters as the 'Basque Nelson Mandela', as he's released from prison after serving 31 years for murder. Groups of supporters and protesters confront each other outside the prison as he walks free.Gatza speaks to David about the continuing struggle for Basque rights and the possibility of ever achieving peace and reconciliation
