Inside the Vatican TV service

Dario Vigano

Italian priest Dario Edoardo Viganò began his new job at the Vatican only weeks before the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI. Viganò’s main mission as director of the Vatican Television Centre is to broadcast the Vatican to the world.

Within a few weeks of beginning his new job, his first major assignment was to tell the world the story of the resignation of a pope, the Sede Vacante, the Conclave and election of a new Bishop of Rome. Under Viganò’s artistic eye, magnificent images of those events went around the entire world. Fr Thomas Rosica has an exclusive interview as he speaks with the head of Vatican TV about Viganò’s mission to keep an age-old institution firmly in the 21st century.
