Description: Retellings of ancient Greek and Roman stories (see www.classictales.co.uk for transcripts, further information and teaching resources to accompany these recordings). The Metamorphoses tales and other Greek myths featured here often involve some form of transformation and explore many aspects of human nature: greed, curiosity, vanity, generosity, arrogance, creativity. This makes them a very powerful springboard for discussion and creative work.
