Inspirational Breakfast with Esther Higham

A new film released this week tells the extraordinary story of the carol, from its very humble origins in an Austrian village during a winter of famine, to topping the charts with Bing Crosby.

It also features special versions of the carol sung by stars like Josh Groban, Kelly Clarkson and Joss Stone.

Director Hannes Shalle has been telling Premier’s Esther Higham how radical the song was at the time.

Silent Night a Song for the World is out now on all digital platforms.
