This programme was broadcast on Christmas Eve and again Christmas Day during our all-day Christmas programme on Newstalk ZB in 2015. The following year the script was re-voiced by Mike McRoberts to air on RadioLIVE.

The Christmas Truce won Best Documentary at the 2015 NZ Radio Awards, and became a key factor in Newstalk ZB commissioning CBA to produce the multi-award winning radio documentary The ANZAC Centenary Tribute with Leighton Smith the following year.
