    The world of the Australian Aborigines is so full of extraordinary force and beauty that the idea of natural miracles, or what we might call magic, can seem quite normal. So natural magic figures very strongly in their stories, and in their lives. However as people are part of nature too, selfishness, greed, jealousy; also love, courage and a sense of humour are readily described in nature just as in men and women.

    The people who inhabit the Arctic stand out among folk traditions in the world, for the sheer weight and number of their stories. This is not surprising really as their long ‘winter night’ lasts for half the year. Their stories are nearly all drawn from nature, and their place in it: as the very harshness of their environment defines very much of their lives.

    Italy is a land forever associated with beauty: in music, in art and in nature. Down the centuries these stories were brought home by travellers, soldiers and merchants, returning crusaders, gypsies and pilgrims. Much loved and often repeated they grew in the telling to become wholly Italian in their nature - which is as much to say that today they are very beautiful indeed.

    Sir Thomas Malory wrote his epic poem La Morte d'Arthur in 1470 and Arthur came to embody the ideal of chivalry with the interwoven stories of the Round Table, the Holy Grail and the glory of Camelot. Of course part of his story is that he will return, and in this recording he is splendidly recreated in a fine reading by Keith Barron. The stories are adapted from Malory by the popular children's writer Nigel Forde.

    Spain has long had a tradition for wonderful stories - of bold knights and beautiful princesses; of castles in the clouds; magical kings and mystical Moors. For centuries the great majority of the Spanish people could neither read nor write. So these stories, so well-worn in the telling, have become full of the native wit, humanity and humour of ordinary men and women.
