Old Jack’s Boat

Bernard Cribbins starred in the second series of double-Bafta nominated Old Jack’s Boat which won a 2014 Bafta for best live action show.

Old Jack, a retired fisherman, tells tall stories from his time at sea from inside his old fishing boat, The Rainbow. Using a mix of live action and animation, Old Jack is able to wander along the seabed, visit tropical islands and fly high in the air on balloons.

His faithful dog, Salty, always accompanies him as he wanders through the streets of Staithes, North Yorkshire, meeting his friends along the way.

The series is now into its second run, with music composed by Paul Honey recorded with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra. It is currently airing on CBeebies with an Easter special coming on BBC One in 2015.
