Jackanory should go back to roots, says Cribbins

Written by jen, 3rd December 2009

Bernard Cribbins has said that the BBC should restore the central role of storytelling in children's television by returning Jackanory to its original format. In their recent revival of the show the BBC dropped the traditional format of a narrator reading from a book, favouring episodes that featured CGI graphics. Cribbins, one of the shows original narrators, commented:

I do wish that it could be brought back in the form that it used to be, with someone sitting one-to-one with a camera. It's like you are talking to your children at bedtime, they look at you and don't see anything else - they don't see flashing lights and CGI and all the rest of it.
