CBeebies Ministry of Stories radio series

Posted by theministry on 19th December 2012

CBeebies Radio launches a new audio series written with the help of the Ministry of Stories this week.

The premise of the series is to convince the Chief of the Ministry (voiced by Women’s Hour presenter Jenni Murray) that children can create fantastic stories.

Children from Hackney, Tower Hamlets and Islington primary schools, helped by Two, The Chief’s trusty aide, worked hard to produce and perform a wonderful new story worthy of the Chief’s stamp of approval.

The series is aimed at helping listeners aged 3-6 and their parents explore the magic of storytelling, and the workshops featured in the recordings involved primary school classes attending our regular story making workshops. We hope you enjoy the first episode, Winter Wonderland, and stay tuned for the rest of the series in the new year.
