Vatican: The Hidden World

As Easter Sunday approaches, NGC offers viewers an intimate look at life behind the Vatican walls. For more than a year, filmmakers were allowed extraordinary access to the center of the Catholic Church and members of the pope's inner circle. We'll meet a bodyguard, an official photographer, the archpriest of St. Peter's Basilica who is privy to Vatican secrets and an altar boy living in the pre-seminary. Then, cameras enter the vaults under the Vatican museum.
