Bernard Cribbins returns to the seaside town of Staithes in a new story-based series born out the popular Bafta-winning Old Jack’s Boat series.
The 15-part series features Cribbins as Old Jack reciting stories from his childhood with a mix of live action and animation (created by Flix Facilities) which brings the story telling to life.
Paul Honey, who scored the previous series of Old Jack’s Boat, recorded his score with the 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 series, produced in-house by CBeebies at MediaCityUK, airs on the CBeebies channel this month.
