British Forces mark Christmas in Helmand

British forces serving in southern Afghanistan have been marking Christmas at military bases across Helmand Province today (25 December). The festivities took place as the troops completed a full day of operational duties. Many soldiers from the UK-led Task Force Helmand spent the day on patrol in support of the Afghan security forces, yet still most found time to open presents and ring home – and enjoy a freshly-prepared Christmas lunch with all the trimmings

The Choir: a year with the Military Wives

In February 2011, Gareth Malone went to the military base at Chivenor to set up a choir for the wives left at home alone while their men are on duty for months at a time. In the Christmas Day show , we hear from Gareth and key members of the choir as they reflect on their extraordinary journey including their performance of a song, specially written by royal composer Paul Mealor , at The Royal Albert Hall.
