Product Description

As featured on "Desert Island Discs"

A TV crew visits a primary school. The teacher asks Mary to tell the story of John the Baptist as the crew films. John calls on folk to "give up yer aul sins." One woman refuses. John gets tossed in jail and begins to have doubts, so he asks a passer-by to find Jesus and ask if he really is God. Jesus, fishing in the sea, assures the man that He is. So the passer-by returns to the jail to give John courage. Meanwhile, the king is invited to a party, takes with him the woman John has earlier confronted, asks her to dance for him, and is so impressed he offers her anything she wants. Mary's colorful narrative, John's head, and the crew's spool of film near their end.

Nominated for an Academy Award in 2002, Give Up Yer Aul Sins: The Story of John the Baptist, led the way for a seven part series, using the original as the first episode. All episodes are based upon the heart warming 1960s recordings of young children telling bible stories to their teacher

Songs: give up yer aul sins, the most important angel, the birth of Jesus, little innocents now, do what yer mammy says, they thrung this cross on him, they crucified him, without opening doors, go home in peace, the holy ghost, before dublin or kerry (the fall), this fellow was blind, then there were twelve, kids should say thanks, lazarus and mickser, the widow who growled, the whooley at cana, patrick said certainly
