Rev. Benjamin Pollard, Bishop of Lancaster and Stephen Eckard
"From this hill, which has known 13 centuries of Christian worship.....The Right Reverend Benjamin Pollard, Lord Bishop of Lancaster greets the people of Lancaster, Massachusetts through the B.B.C. microphone. The Bishop's cross carries the emblem from a Runic cross, one of the earliest Christian relics found in the city. Now in the British Museum, the cross dates from the early 700's when Christianity was re-introduced in Lancaster after the pagan interval which followed the Roman withdrawal."
From a single request originating from station WTAG, Worcester, Massachusetts., has grown a long series of town to town broadcasts in the North Amercian service of the BBC. The most recent programme was made in Lancaster, England for Lancaster, Massachusetts by Stephen Eckhard, Amercian-born producer of the BBC. The progamme was broad cast in non-advertising time.
