If you hesitate you’ll miss it – the starburst of joy when children from a local school put on a Nativity Play at Bethany, our Christian Care Home in Plymouth.  Afterwards, children chatted with residents, and one, a former headmaster who used to arrange such things in his school said their performance had meant so much to him it almost moved him to tears.

Others’ comments showed how much they loved not only the performance, but the children’s company.

BBC TV visited and made a small documentary and is broadcasting it on today’s News.  It’s on until 7.00 pm this evening.  Catch it quickly!  It begins 20 minutes into this clip:
