How Buenos Aires made Pope Francis

Buenos Aires

On ABC Radio National, Andrew West takes you to the Pope's hometown of Buenos Aires in Argentina, and asks the question: How did the city and the country shape the man who leads one billion plus Catholics worldwide?  

Twelve months ago, few Westerners knew of Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio. He's since taken the title of Pope Francis, and has now been in the Church's top job for one year. ABC Radio has this special report on the place that made the man.
