"it would have been lauded as an intellectual partnership"by Annabelle Chapman / February 16, 2016 / Leave a comment
The BBC’s post-Valentine’s Day lineup has an unlikely hero: the late Pope John Paul II. The Secret Letters of Pope John Paul II, presented by veteran broadcaster and practicing Catholic Edward Stourton, probes John Paul II’s thirty-year friendship with a married woman. The BBC has trodden carefully, aware of the delicate subject matter. As it states on its website, almost as a disclaimer, the programme does not suggest that the relationship became physical.
