Radio 2 starts exploring the theme of beauty

BBC Radio 2 is to broadcast a week of special programming exploring the theme of beauty for the network’s annual Faith In The World Week.

The Radio 2 initiative will launch during Good Morning Sunday hosted by Fern Britton this weekend and will close in the same programme the following week.

A series of features and interviews will air on the station from Sunday 23 to Sunday 30 October examining the relationship with beauty and looking at the moral, religious and ethical issues surrounding it.

5 live and BBC local radio will also air special programmes on the theme – Adrian Chiles and Emma Barnett’s 5 live Daily will feature a discussion on the topic of beauty and body image on Monday, and religious programmes on local BBC radio stations will carry features, discovering what people regard as the most beautiful qualities in their partners, friends and parents in a specially commissioned COMRES poll for Faith in the World Week. The results of the poll will be revealed as part of the launch on October 23.

Christine Morgan, Head of BBC Radio Religion and Ethics, says: “Radio 2’s Faith in the World Week always uncovers the unexpected and I’m very excited that this year’s theme has really got people talking. When we asked, what does beauty mean to you? we got an amazing range of thoughtful, funny, and very personal responses – and we’ll be asking listeners for more thoughts throughout the week.”

Lewis Carnie, Head of Programming, Radio 2, adds: “As the UK’s most listened-to radio station, Radio 2 prides itself in producing distinctive speech content alongside music and entertainment programming. Faith programming is an important part of our schedule and this year’s topic will explore many different themes around beauty which I’m sure will resonate with audiences of all faiths.”
