Santa Claus/Father Christmas

This month, we published the following features:

City Farm
Who said that London is all hooting taxis and rumbling buses?! Jackie Dalton finds out about a very different side to London, where pigs, sheep and donkeys roam freely. And we also explore some animal-related vocabulary on our visit to the City Farm.

Christmas at the market
Christmas shopping on the high street can sometimes be very uninspiring if you're looking to buy unusual or special gifts. But London's markets can offer a solution. In this programme, we visit one London market which is famous for selling original and interesting products.

Connie Fisher
In this programme, we hear how a young woman called Connie Fisher took part in a reality television programme. The producers were looking for a new and previously unknown actress to play the part of Maria for a new production of the world famous musical, "The Sound of Music". Connie managed to beat many other hopefuls and is now playing to a sell-out audience.

Indian Jewelry
A London gallery recently hosted an exhibition of Indian jewellery, most of which was made by jewellery makers from the city of Jaipur. It's been a centre for jewellery-making for many years and the exhibition included priceless necklaces, bracelets and other items that were made for former Indian emperors.
