Now, that’s praise! “Songs Of Praise” from a migrant/refugee church In Calais, France

The BBC Is Filming “Songs Of Praise” At Migrant Church In Calais And Some People Are Furious

TV crews plan to broadcast footage from a migrant camp in Calais, France full of people hoping to reach Britain.

The BBC‘s decision to film a special edition of ‘Songs Of Praise’ from Calais’ biggest migrant camp has inflamed opinions, with critics branding the move “insensitive” while others say it could help humanize the crisis.

Crews for the TV program have been filming at a church in the so-called ‘Jungle’, a sprawling encampment home to thousands hoping to reach Britain.

 A woman enters the site of a church in a make shift camp near the port of Calais on July 31, 2015 in Calais, France. Strike action and daily attempts by hundreds of migrants to enter the Channel Tunnel and onto trains heading to the United Kingdom is causing delays to passenger and freight services across the channel. British Prime Minster David Cameron has announced that extra sniffer dogs and fencing are to be sent to Calais and land owned by the Ministry of Defence is to be used as a lorry park to ease congestion near the port of Dover in Kent. 

Andrew Rosindell, MP for Romford, told The Sun on Thursday: “This is an insensitive thing to do. We are facing a grave crisis.
