Radio 2 to feature multi-faith programming

BBC Radio 2 is hosting a week of programming exploring the theme of growing up as a teenager in multi-faith Britain.

As part of the initiative, BBC local radio commissioned a ComRes Poll for Radio 2 questioning whether British adults felt young people today understand more about religion and faith compared to when they were young, and tolerance towards people from different backgrounds.

The key findings, announced and discussed during last week’s Radio 2 Good Morning Sunday with Olly Smith (sitting in for regular presenter Clare Balding), showed that the majority of British adults (59%) say that children today understand more about different religious communities compared to when they were young.

Other features will run across the station, including in the breakfast show with Chris Evans and the Jeremy Vine show.

Bob Shennan, Director BBC Music, Controller BBC Radio 2, 6 Music and Asian Network, says: “Radio 2 is committed to broadcasting programming that reflects the diversity of the UK, and with Faith In The World Week we are able to cover a range of faiths and topics with which our listeners will be able to connect.”
