The Nativity

Duration: 34 minutes

First broadcast: on BBC One LondonLatest broadcast: on BBC One Wales

For the third Sunday of Advent we celebrate the nativity story as the Rev Kate Bottley visits a farm in Devon where children are invited to perform the nativity story with real animals. We meet a Christian who carves traditional wooden nativity sets in a converted stable and join him as he delivers a brand new set to an excited family. There are Christmas carols from a festively decorated barn in Hertfordshire, and we also have a special performance from the all-boys choir Libera, singing Carol of the Bells. Show less
