BBC4 programme on Pugin from St Mary's Cathedral, Newcastle upon Tyne

Last November BBC4 decided to record a programme on the architect Pugin. As he designed St Mary's Cathedral in Newcastle it was decided that this would be a good venue.

In view of the fact that the cathedral was designed for the Usus Antiquior the cathedral dean, Fr Peter Leighton, asked Fr Michael Brown if it were possible to re-enact a part of a Solemn High Mass (the Offertory). A team of servers plus the Schola Sancti Baedae took part with Fr Brown as celebrant, Fr David Phillips as deacon and Fr Jim Angus as sub-deacon.

The programme is to be televised on BBC4 on Thursday 19th January 2012. Watch out for details of time in your TV guide.
