Truth, kindness and shipping containers will make up the BBC's big Easter event on South Tyneside.

The Great North Passion will be hosted by Fern Britton and feature singer Alexandra Burke and local people telling the story of the last moments in the life of Jesus Christ.

With just over a week to go one part of the Good Friday programme has set sail.
