Cardinal Turkson
Is there a division between Catholics in Europe and Africa?

In a HARDtalk interview on Thursday 7 April, Zeinab Badawi talks to Cardinal Peter Appiah Turkson, Archbishop of Cape Coast, Ghana, about the challenges facing a new pope.

The College of Cardinals have named April 18 as the date for the start of the conclave to elect a successor to Pope John Paul II.

Will they choose a pope from an increasingly secular Europe or from a developing country where Catholicism is growing?

Zeinab Badawi speaks to Ghana's Cardinal, Peter Appiah Turkson, in Rome.

Does he think it is time for a pope from the developing world?

HARDtalk can be seen on BBC World at 0330 GMT, 0830 GMT, 1130 GMT, 1530 GMT, 1830 GMT, 2330 GMT

It can also be seen on BBC News 24 at 0430 and 2330
