A collection of folk tales and fairy stories from all over the world, based on an anthology of stories for children.
Storybook International (also known as Stories and Fables) is a British children’s television series, produced for ITV by Harlech Productions, a part of HTV and written by Barry Levinson and Virginia Boston. The weekly, half-hour show was a collection of folk tales and fairy stories from all over the world, based on an anthology of stories for children published by Gollancz in 1981, edited by Veronica Kruger.
Filmed in such locales as Russia, Ireland and Scandinavia, the series’ live-action playlets were based on stories which originated in England, Czechoslovakia, France, Romania, Turkey, Wales, Israel, Norway, China, Africa, India and elsewhere. A few of the stories were campfire legends derived from the Native Americans of New England and the Maori of New Zealand.
