 I'll tell you a story,

About Jack a Nory,

And now my story's begun,

Long-running CBBC show in which a famous person would read a well-known children's book, typically in 15-minute chunks over the course of a week. The stories ranged widely, with Fairy Tales, Roald Dahl, Winnie the Pooh and The Moomins amongst many others.

This did not lead to a further season, although Jackanory Junior was launched, reading picture books on CBeebies.
