December 25, 2007 Leave a comment
The daily radio show “As It Happens” on CBC continued a Christmas Eve tradition by broadcasting a reading of “The Shepherd,” a short story by Frederick Forsyth. It’s a classic ghost story told by the pilot of a de Havilland DH 100 Vampire jet lost over the North Sea on a foggy Christmas Eve in 1957.
Update: CBC now offers a collection of Christmas stories read by Alan Maitland on CD. The Shepherd and Other Christmas Stories – Read by Alan Maitland is available on the CBC Web site for $17.95.
