The Nativity, as told by a farmer, and starring real animals

Families flock to Roves Farm in north Wiltshire to take part in a Christmas nativity which stars real farm animals - and the farmer - who dresses up as a donkey.

Farmer Rupert Burr dresses as a donkey to tell the Christmas story. Roves Farm near Swindon has hundreds of sheep, cows and pigs but every Christmas the family puts on a nativity. Scores of children dress up and take part in the play, performing alongside the livestock. The stars of the show - three donkeys, three sheep, a cow and two alpacas.
