We’ll Tell You a Story

“IF YOU like to sing songs and you like to hear rhymes…” Post-nappies, pre-primary ten-minute lunchtime dittyfest airing before RAINBOW and presented by the impeccable CHRISTOPHER LILLICRAP, who did ten minutes with guitar and surrounded by cushions, er, singing songs, reciting rhymes and then, as promised, telling a story. Kids with spin-doctor ambitions moaned that the songs and rhymes were the same (nursery rhymes set to guitar) meaning that they only got half of what was promised. Still, the energy and uncle-like joviality of the host made it far more watchable than stuff like SONGBOOK as well as providing endless afternoon playtime chuckles over that surname.

    Didn’t Mr Crap sing a song while staring at his reflection in a big mirror in every episode? Or am I getting mixed up with the Witch in Quincy’s Quest, which I do in my hopelessly confused mind’s eye?
