BBC series "Our Man in the Vatican"

The BBC has produced a series of three programmes on the life and work of Francis Campbell, the British ambassador to the Holy See. The series is to be shown on BBC 1 in Northern Ireland only, starting this Wednesday 17 February. There is a short trailer at Our Man in the Vatican, and there is a programme information brochure.

This might be quite significant since HMG will obviously have an interest in giving a certain spin to relations between the UK and the Holy See. The series includes an interview with Tony Blair.

UPDATE: BBC1 Northern Ireland is available on Sky channel 973.
