    A child in a manger is a symbol recognised the world over. As Christians prepare to celebrate the coming of Jesus Christ, Roy Jenkins looks at the everyday miracle of birth - what it is to bring a child into the world, and what is to lose one. We hear of heartache and of sheer joy, and explore what childbirth can bring to our understanding of the Christmas story.

    Roy Jenkins presents the end-of-year film review programme. There are two biopics of very different sorts – one tells the extraordinary life of Neil Baldwin, a man who refused to accept the label of learning difficulties, and the other the story of Nelson Mandela. We also discuss a black comedy set in rural Ireland that explores the Catholic Church’s history of child abuse. And of course, our panel of guests have also suggested a film themselves that has had an impact on them over the last year.

    In the UK 1 in 4 women will experience domestic violence at some time in her life; globally it’s the biggest cause of death for women between the ages of 19 and 34. And here in Wales no fewer than 1,300 women had to enter a refuge last year. Roy Jenkins discusses Gender Based Violence with a panel of guests, including Samsunear Ali from the Welsh women’s support group Bawso; Laura Gill from the Baptist Missionary Society; Peter Grant from the Christian campaigning group Restored; and Professor Eryl Davies, an expert in feminist theology, at Bangor University. Roy asks how religions are helping to combat this fundamental abuse of women’s rights, or whether they are helping to feed it?

    Roy Jenkins meets Steve Clifford who leads the UK Evangelical Alliance. It reckons to represent two million of the country’s Christians in what’s often presented as the country’s most flourishing expression of church life. But it’s not immune from some of the controversies which beset whole denominations - and recent challenging of its position on sexuality and Biblical authority suggests that not everyone shares the same certainties. So what is an evangelical today? And what are the key issues facing the movement?
