You gave me a couple of leads that I followed
to a show called "Stone Soup" and another
called "Pantry Raiders" but hit a
dead end when searching for
the show host that I'm
searching for.

the name "Stone Soup"
and the FaerieTale it
brought to mind sent me
off on yet another tangent;

Does anyone remember watching
Jim Henson's "The Story Teller"?
starring John Hurt as The Storyteller?

Actually, there were phases of the show
One that related olde European Tales
The other involved Greek Mythology.

I checked out YouTUBE but
only the Greek Myths remain:
