Battle Stations at the Vatican

30 minutes
First broadcast:
Saturday 09 March 2013

Correspondents' stories from around the world. Battle stations at the Vatican! Allan Little says there are deep disagreements among the cardinals as they prepare to elect a new pope. They are voting too in the Falklands. Caroline Wyatt says the result is in little doubt. But what will they make of it in Argentina? Stephen Sackur has been in Tunisia, a land which has been in deep political crisis since the shooting last month of a prominent critic of the government. How should a town handle the legacy of being the birthplace of a notorious dictator? Bethany Bell's been asking that question in Georgia and in Austria - and getting a variety of answers. And Steve Rosenberg went to interview a former leader of the Soviet Union. Little did he know he'd end up accompanying him on the piano!
From Our Own Correspondent is produced by Tony Grant.
