Uncle Jack BBC Kids Paul Jones

Comedy series for kids that saw two children have adventures with their archaeologist Uncle Jack (Paul Jones). As befitting a series produced by Rentaghost’s Jeremy Swan there was plenty of slapstick and despite the often exotic locales the show never ventured far from the confines of the studio.

Each of the shows four seasons had individual titles, these were,
1.UNCLE JACK AND OPERATION GREEN
2.UNCLE JACK AND THE LOCH NESS MONSTER
3.UNCLE JACK AND THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON
4.UNCLE JACK AND CLEOPATRA’S MUMMY

Cast: PAUL JONES as Jack; FENELLA FIELDING as Vixen; MOYRA FRASER as Imogen; ROGER HAMMOND as ‘M’; TRICIA GEORGE as Dorothy; MICHAEL COCHRANE as Smythe; NATASHA GRAY as Imelda

Writer: Jimmy Eldridge / Producer: Jeremy Swan
