Our BBC series returns this week, with the fourth of our mini documentaries about fascinating locals.
Tony Cooper is a man of many talents, having worked as everything from a teacher to a stuntman. Nowadays he is a professional storyteller. With a dash of improvisation, he tailors tales for each assembled throng, adding local colour to ancient tales (such as those of the Middle Eastern character Nasrudin) and speaking to children and adults alike.
To hear our mini-documentary on Tony, just tune in to Dominic King’s show from 4pm tomorrow (Tuesday).
And, as a Special Bonus, just for The Bakery Blog, we’ve put together a hand-drawn animation to accompany Tony’s telling of ‘Nasrudin & The Hangman’s Dilemma’. Just click below to give it a watch, we hope you enjoy!
Our thanks to Tony
