No Midnight Mass on TV

By our Radio Correspondent ALTHOUGH two distinctively Catholic programmes are planned for the Christmas season by the B.B.C. Television Service, it is now definite that there will be no Midnight Mass on TV this year.

The fault, I am told on reliable authority, does not lie with the B.B.C. For that reason letters urging programme planners to televise Midnight Mass can hardly be expected to produce any response.

My informant made the point that the B.B.C. would have been willing, with any encouragement, to put Midnight Mass on TV last Christmas. But because the Religious Advisory Committee, whose decisions arc always acted on by the B.B.C., refused to make the most of the opportunity, nothing was done—then or since.

Light Programme listeners, on the other hand, will be able to hear Midnight Mass broadcast this year from Hawkesyard Priory.
