The documentary about the performance will be screened on BBC Two on Sunday 17 December at 9 PM, and is said to follow Boyle overcoming the “many restrictions” to find a cast, crew and local children, and put together the show in six weeks.
The performance took place on 3 December and was co-directed by Bethlehem-based Riham Isaac. Another video shows local children singing in Arabic while rehearsing.
Banksy created a promotional image for the documentary showing a drone watching over the nativity scene. (Source: BBC)
