As a result of working from home and wandering into the lounge at the right time I managed to see the return of Jackanory, which was a TV show that had a great influence on me when I was a boy starting to discover the joy of reading. Things have changed a lot from the old Bernard Cribbens days and now computer graphics help the story keep going. What is still excellent is that the single narrator does all the voices, gets into the story and adds something that is magical and could not be produced if it wasn’t being read but just told through pictures and graphics. Sadly I will back in the office as the story of Muddle Earth continues on Wednesday but my sons should be watching, which is the main thing.
