The original series was written by Anthony Minghella and starred John Hurt and Brian Henson as the Storyteller and his Dog. Guests stars included Jonathan Pryce, Miranda Richardson, Joely Richardson, Sean Bean, Dawn French, Jennifer Saunders and a whole host of characters from the Jim Henson Creature Shop. The Storyteller guides us through nine folktales

"The Storyteller: Greek Myths" saw Michael Gabon take over the role of the Storyteller as it moved from the cosy spot by the fire to the Labyrinth of the Minotaur, and four additional stories from Ancient Greece.
