The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark
Story time for younger viewers. Alun Armstrong reads this classic story, originally published in 1968, about a barn owl called Plop who is afraid of the dark. Through a series of meetings with different people, Plop slowly comes to realise how varied, beautiful and important darkness is. In the process, he learns to be a night-owl and can take his place next to his ever-patient mother and father as they fly off to hunt in the dark.
