The BBC defended its coverage of last week's state visit of Pope Benedict XVI after hundreds of viewers lodged complaints.
Figures from the Corporation showed public anger fairly evenly spread – 169 viewers complained that coverage was too favourable, while 197 were concerned that it was too critical. There were also 384 complaints from viewers who felt there was saturation coverage.
A spokeswoman said: "The Pope's visit was of historic significance for millions of Catholics."Reuse content
