The BBC for the last 3 days has been showing a new programme centred on the Nativity. It’s on at 7pm BBC1 as is truely a fabulous telling of the nativity story and tonight is the last installment. It’s been written by Tony Jordan who writes for Eastenders and truely shows the power of the story.
On Sunday I heard Tony Jordan being interviewed by Aled Jones – He described the story as ‘the singularly most beautiful story….WOW….’ He decribes the Shepherd as ‘getting the X factor appearance from the shepherd’s and Joseph only gets a dream….surely this should be the other way round….as he wrote this he got it – the Shepherd’s represent us….they represent me.’
All I can say is thank you for scripting this story in such a wonderful and beautiful way!
