Just before Christmas, I posted A Birthday at Bethlehem, a programme I wrote in 1983 starring Peter Goodwright and Thora Hird. The same year, I wrote four monologues for Peter Goodwright to perform on the 'Pause for Thought' slot on Terry Wogan's Radio 2 morning show.

The Donkey Salesman who made a fleeting appearance in the earlier programme got to do his own turn (enabling the successful Flight into Egypt) and was joined by an Apprentice Angel, a Civil Servant in the court of King Herod and a genuine Biblical character, Simeon...

I hope you enjoy these little thoughts as we once more head away from the Christmas season towards the New Year...
