“The Shepherd” by Frederick Forsyth on CBC
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.
The CBC hosts said that the reading of this classic would be available as a podcast for a limited time. It’s not always available on the CBC website, but check back around Christmas (a good link to try is here).
