Up the Tree Again

Episode 2 of 2

Duration:
30 minutes
First broadcast:
Monday 31 December 2012

Wisha, wisha, wisha.

Playfulness, soundscape and oddity above the rustling leaves of Enid Blyton's Magic Faraway Tree.

In the centre of the Enchanted Wood is the Faraway Tree. Home to Moonface, Silky and Saucepan Man, its upper branches stretch into cloud-hosted dimensions of strange and magical lands.

In this two-part abridged adaptation of Enid Blyton's classic children's tale, BBC Radio 4 swoops voices from the world of entertainment into the mystical lands above.

Featuring Johnny Vegas, as Moonface, Nigel Planer as Saucepan and Lucy Beaumont (Winner of the BBC's New Comedy Awards 2012) as Silky.
