RTÉ unveils new religious schedule

RTÉ is gearing up for another season of religious discussion programming. Beyond Belief returns to RTÉ One TV with a new series of six Monday night programmes beginning on September 23 at 11.15pm.


In this series, Mick Peelo and a panel discuss a range of stories from a moral, ethical and religious perspective.


Programme 1 explores the issue of conscience and the law and asks: What exactly is conscience and what is its role in public life? Future programmes will examine issues as diverse as forgiveness, the Angelus, Islam, the media and what life and death actually mean.


Meanwhile, the popular Radio One programme The God Slot with presenter Eileen Dunne will return to its usual Friday night slot of 10pm from Friday, October 4.


Producer Gerry McArdle told The Irish Catholic that the show was expected only to have one series back in 2011.


However, now in its third series, he says it will continue with “our mix of news, reviews of books, theatre and film, discussions and in-depth interviews, and all things that have a religious, spiritual or faith dimension”.
