If you were a commissioning editor at Channel 4 and wanted to make a documentary about the Pope's religious and political journey since the 1930s, who might you get to front it?
Ann Widdecombe? Sue MacGregor? Ed Stourton?
No. Channel Four has chosen Peter Tatchell. Yes, your gob is smacked, isn't it?
Peter says he wants to produce a completely factual programme. In which case, why did Channel 4 choose him? Surely his attraction to a programme maker is that he is deeply opinionated.
