Religious programming on the BBC over Easter

It's been a little over eight months since I rejoined the BBC to be the Head of Religion and Ethics and Commissioning Editor for Television and my first Easter is fast approaching.

Last year we got some criticism for our Easter coverage and, as I have already stated, I don't think the BBC got the balance of Easter programming on television right in 2009. But we've listened to viewers' feedback and worked hard to address this. I'm very proud of the output across both BBC TV and radio to mark and celebrate Easter this year. We have everything from live worship and sacred music to insightful and topical television documentaries on BBC One to mark both Good Friday and Easter Sunday. You can find a full list of the Easter programming on TV and Radio on this pdf.

I hope you can take the time to watch and listen to some of the programmes listed and, if you do, I hope that you enjoy them!
