There she goes again: the Liverpool Nativity


I really enjoyed the Liverpool Nativity on BBC 3 on Sunday night. Produced by the same people as last year's Manchester Passion, the Nativity story is set in the present, recorded live in the city, and uses music from Liverpool's rich back catalogue [I loved Teardrop Explodes Reward and the La's There she goes]. The Mary and Joseph characters are played brilliantly by Jodie McNee and kenny Thompson, and lots of familiar Liverpool actors play in other roles. It's really good to see the great story 'out there' and being wondered at. If you didn't catch it you can see it again on BBC iPlayer
