Saturday, August 8 at 7 p.m., NBC10 presents The People’s Pope — an insider’s look into the story behind how Jorge Bergoglio, a boy who came from humble beginnings in Buenos Aires, Argentina, became Pope Francis.

NBC10 and Telemundo 62 are the only local TV news operation to send reporters the pope’s homeland to learn firsthand more about Bergoglio and the times in which he lived and led. NBC10’s Jim Rosenfield and Telemundo 62’s Ramon Zayas interviewed Bergoglio’s close friends, colleagues and critics to discover how the pope’s life in Argentina impacts his leadership now on the world stage.

Jim and Ramon spent a week in Argentina this summer with people including a childhood friend of the pope’s, his biographer, people who worked alongside him for years, both in the church and in some of Argentina’s poorest, most dangerous neighborhoods.

What they learned will be revealed along with rare photographs and video, beginning this week in a special half-hour show, The People’s Pope that airs Saturday at 7 p.m. on NBC10.
