'Faith on the Air' is a Leverhulme Trust - funded project on the history of religious education in the context of religious broadcasting, running at the University of Worcester (2014 - 2016). The project aims to document the history of this strand of religious broadcasting from its inception on radio in the 1920s, through the television era, to the digital present, focusing upon the ways in which religion was represented in various outputs, (including documentary sources) for children and young people across decades during w hich significant religious change occurred. It will explore the interface between religious, media and educational history and various ways each impacted upon one another through dominant discourses in circulation about religion and education, and by the c rossover of personnel between the fields of RE and broadcasting. This paper will introduce the project in more detail, with the intention of disseminating some of its early observations and to enable greater connectivity with those working researching the field.
