For this holiday season we investigate the intriguing story of a classic Christmas poem: ‘A Vision of St Nicholas’. The story takes us from Victorian Britain to the poem’s origins in early 19th-century America and finally to a remarkable exhibition staged amidst the ruins of post-war Germany.

We hope you will enjoy it!
