Archbishop of Canterbury warns broadcasters not to ditch religious shows
Sam JonesThe archbishop of Canterbury has counselled broadcasters against "cultivating ignorance" by abandoning religious programmes, saying such shows play a vital part in fighting prejudice by teaching the public about different faiths.
Justin Welby – who was enthroned as leader of the worldwide Anglican communion in March – described religious formats as the real reality shows and said programmes such as ITV's Strictly Kosher and Channel 4's Islam: The Untold Story had provided considerable insights into the faiths they documented.
He said that although reality TV programmes such as Castaway and I'm A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here! thrived on putting "ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances", the genre could also be profoundly educational.
