Anthem: This is the day (Palestrina) Of all possible days Easter Sunday, both according to custom and for the centrality of its meaning, is the day for the service of Holy Communion. Bradford Cathedral, the scene of this morning's broadcast, was built as a parish church, on the side of a hill overlooking the centre of the town. The building has now been modified and extended to enable it better to fulfil its function at the heart of the Bradford diocese.
The new order for the Communion Service allows for greater congregational participation than the traditional service-today's broadcast is designed to reveal a typical group of Christians taking their full and proper part at the central act of worship on the central day of the Christian year.

This is the story of betrayal and counter-betrayal: the story of an innocent woman dragged into the cold world of espionage because her husband has been arrested abroad and denied access to the British Consul. She is finally left with a terrible choice of loyalties -to her husband or her country. Or are they the same thing in the end? Dinsdale Landen chose this episode as representing the icy realities of modern espionage far more truly and frighteningly than the usual image of fast cars, soft women, and plushy hotels.

The Rev. John Scott has been minister on the outskirts of Tannochbrae for as many years as Cameron has been doctor. Like Cameron, he has served the community well. It is not surprising then that, when the townsfolk begin to hurl abuse and demand his dismissal, Cameron takes a personal interest - 'There but for the grace... etc.' Admittedly, on the surface, the inhabitants have every good reason - the minister has failed to turn up at christenings and funerals and, at one point, all but slandered the whole congregation. At first his behaviour was put down to the loss of his house-keeper but, as incident piled upon incident, it became obvious to Cameron that there was more to it than that.

Philip Collins's one-man show has been seen in theatres and colleges in Britain, France, and America. Professor Collins is a member of the Department of English at Leicester University.
Tonight he performs extracts from Charles Dickens's novels, letters, and short stories, linking the extracts with anecdotes and insights into the character of Dickens, writer and man.
In his later years Charles Dickens defied his doctors by continuing his dramatic readings, and the climax of his programme - the murder of Nancy from Oliver Twist - was so taxing that he lay prostrate for twenty minutes after each performance.
This same extract is also the climax of tonight's Omnibus in which viewers see for the first time what other audiences in Britain and America have already seen and praised. It should be a memorable occasion.
A shortened version of the programme shown at 6 15 p.m.
