The Nativity

Cognitive and BBC collaboration

About our partners

BBC Radio 2 is one of the BBC's national radio stations and the most popular station in the United Kingdom with over 15 million weekly listeners.

In 2015 BBC Radio 2 wanted to broadcast a Christmas story with cameo's from all of their famous presenters and they asked us to illustrate a short film to go with it to be broadcast on-line.

The film

Using a simple whiteboard animation style, we told the Nativity story in a very traditional way - as is appropriate for a tale that has been told for hundreds of years.

The film was voiced by Radio 2's favourite and most popular presenters, including Clare Balding, Dermot O'Leary, Jo Whiley, Sara Cox, Ken Bruce, Diane Louise Jordan and Jeremy Vine.

The Context

The film was published on the Sunday Hour Special for Christmas Day
