Broadcasters learn Secrets of the Vatican

Secrets of the VaticanA trio of broadcasters has acquired PBS Frontline documentary Secrets of the Vatican.

The networks – SBS from Australia, TVN from Poland and TVI from Portugal – have taken local broadcast rights from distributor PBS International.

The 1x90mins doc exposes the threats and scandals such as the clergy sex abuse cases that rocked the Catholic Church during Pope Benedict’s papacy and outlines the myriad of challenges facing the incumbent Pope Francis as he tries to reform Vatican bureaucracy.

The film, from Anthony Thomas and Eamonn Mathews, features undercover footage, interviews with Vatican insiders, abuse victims, whistleblowers and journalists.
