About

‘Faith on the Air’ is a Leverhulme Trust-funded project on the history of religious education in the context of religious broadcasting, running at the University of Worcester (2014-2016). The project aims to document the history of this strand of religious broadcasting from its inception on radio in the 1920s, through the television era, to the digital present.  It will focus upon the ways in which religion was represented in various outputs, (including documentary sources) for children and young people across decades during which significant religious change occurred. It will explore the interface between religious, media and educational history and various ways each impacted upon one another through dominant discourses in circulation about religion and education, and by the crossover of personnel between the fields of RE and broadcasting.

  1. Very intrugued by all the possibilities of the prohject, including the interplays between interfaith development, the changing role of the Church of England, the changing perception of religion in the UK and the relation between religion and non-religious worldviews in RE.
