This Christmas, we revel in this special, joyous day with a programme celebrating the Nativity. Happiness in all its guises and forms, from the openly jubilant to the quiet, reflective glow that comes with inner peace is represented this evening, and with the message that this joy, regardless of faith and belief, is within ourselves and there for the taking. With carols in English, French, Italian and Spanish, as well as a smattering of familiar favourites, join us in ushering in this most special of days.
