The Man Who Shot the Pope: A Study in Terrorism
Winner 1982 | NBC News
NBC News has produced an exhaustive investigative documentary which examines both the background and the motives of Mehmet Ali Agca, who shot the Pope in May of 1981. The show rigorously retraces Agca’s history of violence and terrorism and introduces evidence which suggests links between his activities, the Bulgarian Secret Service, and the KGB. This television documentary is an exceptional example of the art that is both comprehensive and compelling, but one that doesn’t go beyond the evidence.
