Music for a talking book project that never happened - a version of the story of Jason and the Argonauts. In this thrilling episode:

1) Fighting the Bull and the Skeleton Army.

Jason is confronted by a ferocious bull which charges towards him. In the ensuing fight a cloud of dust fills the air, and when it clears Jason stands triumphantly over the dead beast. But the Argonauts shout a warning - behind Jason a skeleton army has appeared. They attack Jason and again a dust cloud obscures the battle, but when it settles the army is destroyed and Jason is the victor.

2) Another Warning.

Princess Medea again warns Jason that the king will try to kill him. She agrees to lead them to the fleece by night.

3) Through the Forest By Night.

The princess leads them through a dense forest with exotic birds singing from the trees. Eventually they reach a clearing and see something gold glistening in the branches of a great tree. The fleece. But as they stare at their prize, the trunk of the tree seems to move, and they see, coiled around the base ……

4) The Dragon.

…. a huge serpent like dragon which rises up and threatens to kill them all with its breath of fire!
