From Canon David Winter

Sir, - I enjoyed the obituary by the Bishop of Worcester, Dr John Inge, for Baroness James, or P. D. James, as most people knew her (Gazette, 5 December). He mentioned her time as a governor of the BBC, when she took a leading part in supporting religious broadcasting (which has always needed friends in high places).

When I was Head of Religious Broadcasting, she invited me to meet her from time to time to keep her informed of what we were doing and to discuss religious broadcasting's place in the BBC culture. She cared passionately about the place of the Christian faith in our national life.
