Excellent stories more often than not!

Jackanory for adults; as was the intention (younglings will have no reference point, but generations who knew childhood in the 60s, 70s and 80s will)
Tales often macabre, amusing and with a twisted moral outcome are the structure. A plethora of different actors or presenters tell different tales.
Most are darkly comic... Tales of the Unexpected meets a satirical Aesop!
Curate’s egg performance and story wise but all still very easy to listen to.
