Clean up TV campaign has new support

Catholic Herald Reporter

THE campaign to clean up BBC television is gaining momentum. Already the number of signatories for the petition being organised by "The Women of Britain" group has climbed to 230,000 and Catholic organisations, including the Knights of St. Columba, have promised to back them.

Archbishop Heenan, in a letter to the London organiser, Mr. Thomas Archer, has stated his "approval" of the objective but stresses that "the laity and especially parents should take the initiative'.

When the target of one million signatures has been reached the organisers plan to send copies of the manifesto to Archbishop Heenan, Archbishop Ramsey, and also to the Prime Minister and the Leader of the Opposition. In an effort to gather more signatures, permission to collect them outside churches after Sunday Masses is now being sought from parish priests in the London area.
