Media / Talk of the Trade: Evangelist puts TV orthodoxy to the test
Wednesday 01 July 1992
The Independent Television Commission last March granted Mr Cerrullo's organisation a licence to start its own satellite channel on Astra, The European Family Network. Under the 1990 Broadcasting Act religious organisations may not hold licences, but the ITC exercised the discretionary power it has when it comes to non-domestic satellite services. The licence was issued on the understanding that the evangelist would not show exorcism, claim special healing powers for himself, fund-raise directly, or appear to dissuade people from orthodox healing. After the BBC programme (and having already asked for changes to a Cerrullo broadcast on Superchannel last year), the ITC is bound to study the new channel's output closely. But the larger question is whether this licence should have been issued in the first place?
