Channel 4 is planning to broadcast Islamic morning prayers as part of a season of programmes celebrating Ramadan, it was announced this morning.
Jay Hunt, the channel's chief creative officer, told journalists "This is something no other channel would do."
Hunt said the exact format of the broadcasts was yet to be agreed. Asked if they would come from a mosque, she said "We are in discussions about how it would work."
The month-long religious observance takes place during July and August and sees Muslims fasting and offering an increased number of prayers and recitations.
A spokesman was unable to confirm whether it will be the first time a daily prayer service has been broadcast on Channel 4.
