Talking About Touchy

I don't know what exactly to make of this, but you might be intrigued....

The three-man crew of RTÉ1's Would You Believe series was shooting footage for a programme on the role of women in the church.

They were taken to a police station in Rome and questioned for three hours as to why their female companion was dressed as a bishop in such a religiously sensitive area....

The Vatican has lodged a complaint to RTÉ claiming the crew had broken this law close to a property owned by the Holy See and in doing so had acted insensitively.

"It's all a bit Da Vinci Code-esque," said one RTÉ source.
