This year. rioting and looting have broken out in several inner-city areas. A major report out today is expected to be highly critical of the work of both Church and State in deprived areas. Commissioned by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Robert Runcie , Faith in the City is likely to make controversial recommendations. Rosemary Hartill , BBC Religious Affairs
Correspondent, visits one of the areas examined in the report and compares her experience with the Church's evidence. In this first full examination of Faith in the City, the principals involved explain their concerns and hopes and a leading
Christian economist offers a critical evaluation of the report's findings.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
