El Salvador    'ROMERO' TO BE NATIONALLY TELEVISED IN EL SALVADOR
A film about the late Archbishop Oscar A. Romero, previously banned by Salvadoran authorities, will be shown on national television as part of the commemorations of the 20th anniversary of his death.
   "We have never before been given permission to show the film 'Romero.' ... I don't know why," Msgr. Ricardo Urioste Bustamante, an official of the San Salvador Archdiocese, told reporters last week.
   The film, starring the late Raul Julia, will be shown in the run-up to a series of activities being planned by the Oscar Romero Foundation for March, said Msgr. Urioste, who heads the organization.
