A new translation by the late Seamus Heaney is set to become a television series to be broadcast by the BBC in Northern Ireland.

The Nobel Laureate translated the verse-stories of the medieval Scots poet Robert Henryson, written more than 500 years ago.

The animations, called Five Fables, have been narrated by Scottish comedian and actor Billy Connolly, who teamed up with Heaney before his death in August last year.

''We met in an hotel in Dublin... I instantly liked the project, and I instantly liked him'', he said.
