    GBCTV (Ghana Broadcasting Corporation, P O Box
    1633, Accra) screens "By the Fireside" every
    Saturday afternoon. Maame Dorkeno tells Anansesem
    to a group of children, some of whom act out the
    story. Plenty of singing and dancing and fun with
    a clearly stated moral at the end. Length about 30
    minutes. The language alternates between English
    and Twi. I heard sometime ago that some of the
    episodes have been subtitled.
