With POPE BENEDICT XVI scheduled to visit the U.K. later this year, BBC Dir. General MARK THOMPSON has reportedly offered the Pontiff an appearance on BBC RADIO 4's "THOUGHT FOR THE DAY."
Controller MARK DAMAZER told the BBC that the POPE is on his "fantasy" list of personalities he wants to appear on RADIO 4; THOMPSON reportedly raised the issue in a meeting at the VATICAN two weeks ago.
