RELIGION AND MEDIA (R.E) Introduction: - In this coursework we were looking at three programs, which included mainstream magazine/ worship, religious magazine and religious documentary. Mainstream magazine/ worship Mainstream worship is about culture, race and different languages.

The problem in Philadelphia was dealt within the story by going to extreme levels (court) just to find out if the firm was prejudice against people who have Aids. The problem was also dealt fairly because Andrew Buckett won the court case against his old lawyer firm he used to work for and he got what he wanted and the was justice.
