Rummaging though a stack of old programme cassettes, I came across this little seasonal offering that was my own contribution to the endless retelling of the 2012-year-old tale...
First broadcast on Christmas Day 1983, it was entitled A Birthday at Bethlehem and starred two of my favourite people for whom I wrote early on in my career: Thora Hird and Peter Goodwright. The readings are by Peter Bartlett and the music is from Tarleton's Jig.
I hope you enjoy it and have a wonderful Christmas Eve in preparation for a glorious Christmas Day!
