The original Christmas gifts are not just biblical commodities. They are still produced today, and in some pretty extraordinary places, from precipitous mountains to the world's deepest mine. Ed Butler travels to jewellers Mappin & Webb, and to Westminster Cathedral in his quest to uncover the modern-day uses of the nativity gifts. Along the way we hear from the biblical scholar James Carleton Paget, the author and gold adventurer Matthew Hart, and from the mysterious Land of Punt.
