I'll tell you a story
About Jack a Nory
And now my story's begun.
I'll tell you another
Of Jack and his brother,
And now my story is done.

The first 'Jackanory' programme aired 50 years ago - on December 13th 1965 - and soon became a much-loved legend of BBC Children's Programmes. It featured a cavalcade of famous actors and illustrators and told countless adored adaptations of children's books over its 30 year run.  Join us for some lively conversation about this icon of storytelling – and a Christmas drink with friends and colleagues.

With thanks for their support for Jackanory at 50

    I worked on many editions of Jackanory as a cameraman and my wife Clair Kendall floor managed quite a few. We have applied for tickets for the meeting at Foyles and look forward to meeting old friends.
