REGARDING THE possibility of having a Catholic TV channel in Britain (report, 5 December), you quote a Catholic bishop supposedly asking what effect overtly Christian programming would have on wider interfaith relationships.
Surely there is some mistake? Would not any Catholic bishop rejoice at the chance to reach a wider public with the message of salvation?
Before even going so far as to plough money and effort into a Catholic channel here, might I suggest that our bishops and all the Catholic community petition cable and satellite companies to carry at least some of the existing output from Mother Angelica's Eternal Word Network? It is ready-made and in English.

THERE ARE plenty of channels where criticism of the Pope's teaching reigns supreme. The new channel I see as a most exciting prospect for good. I hope it will inspire faith and that its programmes will resonate in tune with the doctrinal heart and mind of Rome. Alan Bancroft
