Liverpool's modern take on the Christmas story has been played out on the city's streets. The Liverpool Nativity told the story of Mary, a pregnant teenager and Joseph, an asylum seeker.
A cast of 300 and 150 crew were involved in the event, which was broadcast live on BBC Three.
Presented by Geoffrey Hughes, the hour-long production used familiar songs from Liverpool's great pop songbook to bring the story to life.
The play was developed by the team behind Manchester's Passion and supported by the Liverpool Culture Company.
It is part of the lead-up to the city's year as the European Capital of Culture.
