Several years ago (1997 or 1998) I came home very late from work and watched a documentary on the Vatican and it’s lengthy construction and development. This program was an hour long (I think) and on History Channel, National Geographic, or The Learning Channel.
I know this information isn’t very much to go on, but I would LOVE to know the name of this program, what channel it was on, or ANY info I could get so I would watch it or even get it on DVD.
Before I watched this program, I never knew St. Peter was buried there, or that the apex of the dome lines up perfectly with the altar, and below that, the tomb of Peter. This show is 99% about the structure, but I’m in construction, and am fascinated but the craftsmanship and scale of the Vatican. Does anyone have any info about this?
