VISIT STAITHES & RUNSWICK BAY

OLD JACK'S BOAT

OLD JACK'S BOAT

Shot in the old part of Staithes, the series features Old Jack, a retired fisherman who tells tall stories from his time at sea from inside his old fishing boat, The Rainbow. Using a mix of live action and animation, Old Jack is able to wander along the seabed, visit tropical islands and fly high in the air on balloons. His faithful dog, Salty, always accompanies him as he wanders through the streets of Staithes meeting his friends along the way.

The story always begins the same - with ‘Once upon a twinkly time, the rainbow set off from Staithes, waved goodbye to Whitby and disappeared over the horizon.’

At the end of each programme, he and Salty leave the boat and walks back through the village’s cobbled streets.
