'Fireside' Al Maitland reads Frederick Forsyth's The Shepherd
The year is 1957. An RAF pilot is heading home from Germany for Christmas. Fog sets in and all radio communication is lost.
As we have nearly every Christmas since 1979, As it Happens presents a classic reading of Frederick Forsyth's The Shepherd by our late host "Fireside" Al Maitland.
Tune in to CBC Radio on Monday, Dec. 24 at 6:30 p.m. (7 p.m. in Newfoundland) to hear The Shepherd. Or, you can listen in the player at the top of this story.
