This particular programme focussed on how the role of religion and in particular the church changed in this county in the twentieth century. The recollections of the contributors include stories of being both put off church and of coming back to church; stories of kind and unkind deeds done in the name of faith. A hundred years ago the church calendar was woven into many people’s lives. No doubt we will wish to consider whether the trends revealed in the programme are continuing in the twenty-first century.
