Storytelling in Japan and Morocco - Coastal Stations

John McCarthy explores storytelling in Japan and Morocco with Nicola Grove and Richard Hamilton and hears about Geoff Saunders' journey round Britain's coastal weather stations.

John McCarthy explores storytelling in Japan with charity founder Nicola Grove who visited the country recently to learn about the heritage of folk tales there and in particular the depiction and involvement of those with learning difficulties. Journalist Richard Hamilton compares this with his own experience of the tellers of tales in the market place of Marrakesh and how this is surviving in modern times. John also meets Geoff Saunders who made a series of journeys all round the British Isles to the coastal weather stations featured in the early morning shipping forecast.

Producer: Harry Parker.
