Songs of Praise Calais migrant camp episode defended by BBC’s head of religion

Filming BBC’s Songs of Praise from a French migrant camp has been defended by the channel’s head of religion who said the programme is not just about music.

Aaqil Ahmed, the public broadcaster’s head of religion and ethics, said this Sunday’s BBC One broadcast from the camp known as the Jungle, would focus on faith not politics.

He was commenting after filming wrapped at the camp near the port of Calais where a group of would-be immigrants have thrown up a ramshackle church, providing ministry and Christian worship.
