Tellytales: Programme 06 - Tha Imperor an tha Nichtingell (Animation)
An Ulster-Scots version of the tale by Hans Christian Andersen about a Chinese emperor.
An Emperor in China was bored with all his riches. Nothing made him happy until a beautiful nightingale was brought to the palace to sing for him. However, the bird was very dull looking…. This story has an important lesson.
