Prof Eamon Duffy presents a series on ten great pontiffs.

The first non-Italian Pope for 450 years, John Paul II survived an early assassination attempt. Though widely acclaimed for his role in challenging communism, he has been criticised for holding inflexible theological and moral positions. Duffy looks at John Paul II's achievements in the context of papal history and remembers his final days when Rome came under the international media spotlight.
