Paul Honey on board for more Rockpool Tales with National Orchestra of Wales


Bernard Cribbins returns to the seaside town of Staithes in story-based series based on double BAFTA-winning Old Jack’s Boat.

The legendary sea-farer is back for another series.

Old Jack’s Boat: Rockpool Tales, features Bernard Cribbins as Old Jack recalling adventures from his childhood with a mix of live action and animation (created by Flix Facilities) to help bring the tales to life.

Paul Honey, who has scored all previous series of Old Jack’s Boat and its spin-off Rockpool Tales recently recorded his score with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales.

Speaking of his experience of scoring the show, Paul said “It’s always a great privilege to be involved with the Old Jack’s Boat series and this time was no exception. Recording with the orchestra was a huge pleasure and I know that both children and grown-ups will love the show”.

The 15-part series, produced in-house by CBeebies at MediaCityUK, broadcasts on the CBeebies channel later this year.
