A reading by Michael Morpurgo of his Christmas book, The Best Christmas Present in The World, with Virginia McKenna and accompanied by the acapella Voices at the Door (including Coope, Boyes and Simpson, Fi Fraser, Jo Freya and Georgina Boyes) singing Christmas carols from Britain, France and Flanders.
Almost a century after the famous Christmas Truce of 1914 and the football match in No-Man's Land between the British and the Germans, a soldier's letter is found by chance in an antique desk - "Jim's Last Letter: to be buried with me when the time comes." And thus begins the quest to find "Dearest Connie".
