BY DEBORAH JONES THE HIGH QUALITY of religious programmes on

television was praised by the jury of the Sandford St Martin Trust at an awards ceremony in London last week.

The award for the best religious television programme shown in the last two years was won by The Lives of *Jesus: Jesus the Rebel, presented by distinguished foreign correspondent Mark Tully and shown on BBC1 last Christmas.

Two programmes shared the runner-up award: Private Eye Editor Ian Hislop's Canterbury Tales, The story of the Church of England in the 20th century on Channel 4, and Modern Meanings: The Good Samaritan, a Granada production where the Burnley Youth Theatre presented the parable in a contemporary setting.

There were also three merit awards, to Canterbury — the Road from Rome in the Everyman series, starring Nigel Hawthorn Heart of the Matter on the ethical debate on allowing the partner of a deceased parent to have their child; and Christmas Worship from the Fleming Fulton School in Belfast, a touching nativity play performed by severely disabled young children.
