Ge­orge's Mar­vel­lous Medicine (1986)

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - The BFG -

For a gen­er­a­tion of im­pres­sion­able kids, BBC sto­ry­telling show Jack­anory marked a first en­counter with one Rik May­all. Dahl’s tale of granny-poi­son­ing proves the per­fect match of story and sto­ry­teller. While it’s just a loud man recit­ing a story while run­ning around a house, mak­ing a mess, it’s a mem­o­rable adap­ta­tion. A great tale beau­ti­fully told – though it’s prob­a­bly not one of your nan’s favourites.
