The marvellous Bernard Cribbins (here with Freema Agyeman as Shelley Periwinkle) stars as a retired fisherman who tells tall stories from his old boat in this charming series for pre-schoolers. A mix of live action and animation (which enables Old Jack to wander along the seabed), the stories are written by the likes of Russell T Davies. Today Old Jack gets into a sticky situation with some honey.
