We all love stories. But why do we tell them? And why do all stories function in an eerily similar way?
John Yorke, creator of the BBC Writers' Academy, has brought a vast array of drama to British screens.
Here he takes us on a journey to the heart of storytelling, revealing that there truly is a unifying shape to narrative forms - one that echoes the fairytale journey into the woods and, like any great art, comes from deep within.
From ancient myths to big-budget blockbusters, he gets to the root of the stories that are all around us, every day.
