Sting's Winter Songbook

Sting returns to his roots in the North East of England to perform a collection of specially-conceived winter songs at Durham Cathedral.

Sting returns to his roots in the North East of England to perform a collection of specially-conceived winter songs at Durham Cathedral. In conversation with Alan Yentob, the film follows Sting and his eclectic mix of folk, rock and classical musicians, both in his home in Italy and in Durham, where he's seen creating his unique blend of folk songs, carols and ballads.

While rehearsing in the Cathedral, he takes the opportunity to visit the haunts of his youth in Newcastle, and meets up with the formative members of his early bands before the concert in the magnificent setting of Durham's thousand-year-old Cathedral.
