Christmas Day with Michael Sheen – BBC Radio Wales

Michael Sheen presented a festive two-hour radio programme on BBC Radio Wales which was played on Christmas day. It was on in the afternoon in two parts, with a break for the Queen’s speech, and once again in the evening with no break, and an extra little bit included. We used the evening edition for the edit below.

There are readings from A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens and A Child’s Christmas in Wales by Dylan Thomas.

The guests are Lyra Sheen, Charlotte Church, Matthew Rhys, Kelly Lee Owens, John Cale, James Dean Bradfield, David Tennant, Jon Hamm, and Dame Siân Phillips.

Listen to an edit of the show with the music removed (see the Spotify playlist further down the page to listen to the songs played!):

BBC Radio Wales posted several video clips from the recording, and a bonus clip of Michael reading one of the excerpts from Dylan Thomas’ ‘A Child’s Christmas in Wales’.

A Spotify playlist of all the songs played, many thanks to Marti!
