R.E Coursework Question 1 Describe and analyse the variety of specifically religious programmes on the terrestial T.V channels? I believe there are a poor variety of religious programmes on T.V. They are on Sundays on the BBC, which has God slots at A.M and P.M. Also ITV/C4 have religious programmes but they are spread out, they don't have God slots.
