Trivia

Originally, the Hellenic Storyteller was to have a new dog in the shape of Cerberus, the three-headed guard dog. But when this creature proved to be too difficult to produce on a Television schedule, the dog from the original The Storyteller (1987) was dusted off and rebuilt in a new, high-tech incarnation.

i was just watching the tele when this came on.i loved it,low budget but they worked well with that. it was wicked how they went from storyteller to the story.i watched the one about orpheus and eurydice.i really liked the hairy faun who creeped me out and hades with his long hair and chalky face was great.it was just like the old storyteller which i loved and michael gambon was great. can't wait for the bbc to show the others.
