From mandy.com we learn that the anticipated, hour-long "THE NIGHT OF THE SHROUD" in Italian with English subtitles and English dubbing is ready. This new, investigative documentary, produced by RAI and directed by Francesca Saracino, “seeks to clarify, with new and unpublished documents, the mountain of doubt about the dating of the Shroud by the carbon 14.”
We are told that for more information, we should click on HTTP://WWW.POLIFEMOSRL.COM. But that URL fails. We are told to click on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bc-sJ3iNwlg for video clip only to find that it isn’t there. An Italian suffix version of the above URL, http://www.polifemosrl.it leads to an “English” button and a few pages that tell almost nothing and offer no way to order the video.
I’ll keep an eye on and update everyone if some new information comes to light. In the meantime here is lede and a synopsis:

These words were spoken by Cardinal Anastasio Ballestero, at the time custodian of the Holy Shroud, just a moment after some samples of linen were cut out of the Holy Shround, upon his own granted permission, in order to undergo the carbon-14 analysis by three international scientific laboratories. What did he mean with that phrase? Well never know. ..
