The Nativity

About this programme

3/4. Joseph still cannot accept Mary's explanation for her pregnancy, and as the neighbours turn against her, she is in danger of being stoned - so Joachim begs his son-in-law to take her to safety in Bethlehem. Meanwhile, the arrival of the Magi on Herod's borders makes him suspicious and he sends his emissary Nicolaus to discover the reason for their mission - but they are wary of revealing the truth to a king with Herod's reputation. Andrew Buchan and Tatiana Maslany star, with Peter Capaldi, Jack Shepherd, Obi Abili, Vincent Regan and Art Malik.
