This adaptation of Michael Morpurgo’s beautiful nativity story, On Angel Wings, was broadcast on Christmas Day 2010 on Classic FM. Produced with Unique the Production Company and adapted by David Spicer, the programme was narrated by Michael Morpurgo and featured Imogen Stubbs and Jack Shepherd. It tells the story of a young shepherd boy who is left behind to guard the sheep after the Angel Gabriel’s visit. He bemoans the injustice of being left behind, Gabriel takes pity of him, and he becomes Christ’s first visitor.
