Shooting of the Pontiff

Rome, 12 May, 1981.

Pope John Paul II crosses St Peter's Square in an open vehicle among thousands of cheering people.

Suddenly three shots ring out across the square and the Pope collapses.

A few minutes later an ambulance is hurtling towards the Gemelli Hospital, sirens wailing.

As four surgeons fight to save the Pope's life, the first theories about the attack are already circulating: who is the assassin Mehmet Ali Agca?

A mentally ill criminal who acted alone? A terrorist, or is he the scapegoat for an international conspiracy?

The attack, which was described as the "crime of the century", launched an unprecedented investigation that generated more questions than answers.

This documentary, with exclusive eye-witness accounts and scientific reconstructions, seeks to bring the evidence together and bring clarity to the questions that remain unanswered.

The Future Of

With the help of industry experts, this docuseries examines new and emerging technological trends to imagine revolutionary possibilities.

What if we could look into the future to see how every aspect of our daily lives – from raising pets and house plants to what we eat and how we date – will be impacted by technology?

We can, and should, expect more from the future than the dystopia promised in current science fiction.

The Future Of will reveal surprising and personal predictions about the rest of our lives — and the lives of generations to come.

Jurnee Smollett lends her voice to this inspired look at the future.
