'If it's still old tradition that counts, at least the advent of DVD has introduced a fresh slant to the old favorites…'Carols from King's', which not only features excellent sound and visual coverage of the December 2000 Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols, but also includes historic footage of the first ever televised service in 1954, and a light-hearted chat among the ancient chapel's last three directors.'
