The Presence of religions on television

The broadcasting of religious programmes on public television stations is determined by Law No. 86-1067 of 30 September 1986 on the freedom of communication, article 56:
"France 2 shall programme religious programmes devoted to the main religions practised in France on Sunday mornings. Said programmes shall be produced under the responsibility of the representatives of said religions and be presented in the form of the live transmission of cultural ceremonies or religious comments. The company shall bear the costs of production within the limit of a maximum amount set in the annual provisions of the terms of reference."
The full text of this law is available on the website of France’s Superior Audiovisual Council.
The amended decree No. 92-280 of 27 March 1992 lays down the rules regarding the broadcasting of advertisements during religious programmes.
