Another pioneer ABC programme was The Sunday Break, established three years ago under the guidance of adviser Penry Jones, which presents the Christian religion to young viewers on the ITV Network every Sunday in terms of their own way of life, and which now has the largest audience of any religious programme

Television’s first visit to an approved school was made by ABC cameras when Mr C. A. Joyce above invited The Sunday Break to his famous Cotswold School, where boys work on the farm in surroundings as close as possible to normal home conditions

Student nurses from the Wellgarth Nursery Training College visited The Sunday Break to talk about their work with children of all races

The Little Sisters of the Assumption at Langley are trained nurses who use scooters to go about their work of tending the sick over a wide area around Manchester. The Sunday Break cameras went with them on their rounds one day

Traditional religious symbol of Christmas for children has always been the crèche. Among the special programmes presented each Christmas by The Sunday Break was the re-creation in three dimensions of The Adoration of the Magi. The model was presented to Coventry Cathedral
