How did the BBC’s dramatisation of The Nativity deal with the Annunciation?
The first of four episodes of BBC One’s The Nativity focused on the relationship of a young couple with whose story we are very familiar, although we may not have seen it in this light before. Tim Byron SJ has high hopes for the rest of this sensitively acted and cleverly written series, which weaves together the many threads of ‘the greatest story ever told’.
