Today’s press report that the Archbishop of Canterbury will call for the “promotion of religious literacy” to be written as a specific duty into a new BBC charter in a speech tonight at the annual Sandford St Martin awards for religious broadcasting at Lambeth Palace. Articles also note that writing in the Radio Times this week Archbishop Justin has said that faith issues should be treated as seriously as sport and drama on television.
