Religion and the Media. For my coursework I wish to analyses explain the rule of religion within the media. Now I am going to describe the variety of specifically religious programmes on the 4 main channels BBC 1, BBC 2, ITV and Channel 4. The religious programmes on the main channel are The Haven and Earth show on BBC 1, Islam Season on BBC 2, and Holy Smoke on ITV and Witness on Channel 4. All these programmes fall into the "god slot". The god slot is time given to religious programmes that can be shown on TV on Sunday. As well as a range of religious programmes which reflect religion.

The Evaluation. "Television always presents religious people touch with the modern world" I think that statement is true because Muslims. Christians are often portrayed negatively in the news (e.g. Muslims in Afghanistan). Also programmes of TV like songs of praise are boring and make religious people seem boring and also people in soaps like dot cotton and Ashley (the vicar in emmeldale) they make them seem boring and all "stupid". However I can say that in some way that statement is also wrong because shows like haven and earth show religious people in a modern way. Channel 4 put witness on at 9 pm on Sunday and that is peak time and they put on so that not all religious are treated unfairly. On the whole thought I believe that statement to be true because I have mentioned television news, soaps and specifically religious programmes tend to show religious people as out of touch with the modern world.
