Are you sitting comfortably? Then it’s time for Crackanory. An updated version of the classic BBC storytelling series Jackanory will feature Harry Enfield reading dark, twisted tales for an audience of grown-up children.

Originally aired between 1965 on 1996, Jackanory’s format of well-known actors reading children’s novels and folk tales entranced generations of young viewers.

Guest readers on the tea-time favourite included Dame Judi Dench, Sir Ian McKellen, Peter Sellers and the Prince of Wales.

Now the UKTV channel comedy Dave has created a new post-watershed series Crackanory, described as “a satirical and twisted grown-up spin on story time”.

Each episode features two stories, read by guest readers including Enfield, Jack Dee, Richard Hammond and comedy actress Sally Phillips, punctuated by a mix of live action and animation.

But the tales are penned by comedy writers including Jeremy Dyson, of the League of Gentlemen, and Kevin Eldon, who have been given a brief to let the darkest recesses of their imaginations run riot.

Crackanory will premiere on Wednesday, November 13 at 10pm on Dave

I don't know whether it will be available to view in the US, but I'm sure some episodes will make it to YouTube!
