    Hey Guys,
    I have only seen The Storyteller and pictures of the Greek Myths series.

    Can someone tell me about it ?

    Was it made like The Storyteller , With someone sitting in a chair telling the stories ?

    What myths did they use in the series ?

    Was it a British or an American man who narrated ?
    And was the Dog from The Storyteller included ?

    Thanks

    See ya

    Lemme see if i can remember:

    It was like the Storyteller, except the narrator and the dog would be in a Greek palace or labyrinth setting instead.

    The myths I remember are Perseus and the Gorgon, Orpheus and Eurydice, Theseus and the Minotaur, and Daedalus and Icarus.

    It was British made definately, and the narrator was some middle aged guy I never caught the name of. The dog WAS there too.

    John Hurt? Funny, he's my music minister at my church---but probably not the same one.

    Ya never know, though . . .

    Ask him the name of the dog on "The Storyteller," then you'll know.
