THE British Minister to the Holy See has presented 13 documentary movies to the Pontifical Commission for Motion Pictures, Radio and Television.

Sir Peter Scarlett made the presentation to Archbishop O'Connor, president of the pontifical commission, so that the films might be added to the commission's film library.

The films, all in colour, were given by the British Council, the British Travel and Holiday Association and the British Transport and Petroleum Company. They deal with different aspects of British life, church architecture and art.

In making the presentation, Sir Peter Scarlett recalled that his predecessor, the late Sir Marcus Choke, had interested the British government two years ago in the Vatican Film Library when it was instituted by Pape John.
