AV Benefits:

Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.

Professional Reviews:

"PBS' 'Frontline' provides the documentary version of a page-turner with 'Secrets of the Vatican' ...  credit Frontline (working in concert with the U.K.'s Channel 4) with another strong piece of investigative journalism, bringing to mind the adage that where there's smoke - even if it comes in the form of white puffs - there's usually fire." - Brian Lowry, Variety

"This PBS-aired FRONTLINE documentary from filmmaker Antony Thomas arrives at a critical time...while the unquestioningly devout are unlikely to enjoy this critique, it seems mostly fair. Recommended." - Video Librarian, Sept/Oct 2014

Description

  • FRONTLINE: Secrets of the Vatican

    Pope Benedict's final days and Francis' battle to set the church on a new path.

    Pope Benedict made history when he announced his resignation, becoming the first Pope to step down voluntarily in six hundred years. In his wake he left a bitterly divided Vatican mired in scandals. But is Benedict's successor, Pope Francis, taming the forces that helped destroy Benedict's papacy? Is he succeeding in lifting the Church out of crisis? Nearly a year in the making, this special 90 minute FRONTLINE goes inside the Vatican--one of the world's most revered and mysterious institutions--to unravel the remarkable series of events that led to the resignation that shook the world. Through interviews with those at the very heart of what happened--cardinals, priests, convicted criminals, police, prosecutors and whistle-blowers--FRONTLINE gives a first-hand account of the final days of Benedict's papacy and the current battle to set the Church on a new path under Francis.
