God TV

God TV started out in 1997 as “The Christian Channel Europe.” In 1997 it was renamed “God Channel,” and in 2002 this international television network took on its current name.

Mrs Alec, who was supported in the broadcast by Canon Andrew White, the vicar of St George’s Church in Baghdad, said she had anticipated her troubles from the beginnings of her marriage to her childhood sweetheart.
