Live coverage from Rome with commentary by Ed Stourton. BBC Rome correspondent David Willey, Editor of the Tablet Catherine Pepinster, General Superior of the Congregation of Jesus Sister Jane Livesey, Rector of the Pontifical Beda College Monsignor Roderick Strange, and Argentinean journalist Max Seitz, will add their insight and knowledge as the ceremonial unfolds in St Peter's Square, and they discuss the likely implications of this ground breaking papacy - the first non-European for 1000 years; the first ever from Latin America; the first Jesuit pope; the first Francis. Producer: Philip Billson.
