My Dad was part of the crew for this show - floor director I think. They shot the opening (the caravan passing through the countryside, picking up stragglers like Hamid Hamilton Camp along the way, to the sound of "Why Don't We Sing This All Together" the Stones song, covered by a Vancouver group called Spring) in some farmland just near where I lived. The caravan crosses a bridge that has since been torn down, though the rest of the road is still there. There was a large canvas tarp with Story Theatre in a big circle printed on it which became a part of my family's camping tent. I also recall visiting the Burnaby studio where the stories were taped and my Dad showing me the set with the rock that Cuchulain couldn't lift but Finn MacCoul could - if I remember correctly. I've always followed those actors since then. It was a terrific show, and a terrific idea for a show. A major part of my childhood memories.
