The potential link between television watching and attitudes to Christianity is explored among 5,432 secondary school children aged 11-15 years in Dundee, Scotland. The results show that, after controlling for the influence of age, sex, social class and parental and personal Church attendance, there is a positive relationship between watching soap operas, light entertainment and current awareness programmes on television and attitudes to Christianity and no significant relationship between watching sports programmes on television and attitudes to Christianity. The results lend weight to the theory that television-watching among adolescents tends to enhance rather than depress religious development and practice.
