The television news on Christmas Day brings us once again pictures of British troops in Afghanistan celebrating Christmas far from their homes and families.
Richard Dannatt knows how that feels. In this programme he speaks of the Christian conviction that has shaped his vocation as a soldier, from training officer at Sandhurst to head of the British army. In conversation with Joan Bakewell he explores some of the dilemmas of modern warfare and politics, and shares his concerns for the spiritual needs of men and women on the front line.
