"Hells Angel: Mother Teresa" by Christopher Hitchens
Originally broadcast in 1994 on Channel 4; Aired again on October 23, 2007
Mother Teresa has become synonymous with saintliness, but is her reputation deserved? Christopher Hitchens investigates the Mother Teresa myth, looking at her work in Calcutta, her global campaign against abortion, her alliance with the most conservative Pope in recent memory and her apparent penchant for right-wing regimes and dictatorships.
