I think it was used for a children's tv show, in which people acted out stories using very few props... i think it was called story time theatre or something like that.

This has been bugging me for years. No one seems to know the answer. It had a kind of gypsy caravan at the beginning and end. There were celebrities enacting children's fables.

I, too, remember seeing this show.  I never even found the *song* until today! Unfortunately the only memory I have was of a dead man escorted into a room full of candles, representing people's lives. He begs to go back to earth and is shown a translucent sliver of candle on its way to burning out as is time to fix whatever it was he needed to.  I was thinking "Faery Tale Theatre", but that is an early 80's series.  This was about 10 years earlier.

The name of the show was "Story Theatre".  It was produced in a single season in 1971.  Check out IMDB for a little more info, tho there's really not a whole lot.

I googled this because I would love to find the opening sequence of this show. I am 95% sure the show was called 'Story train.'

There was a TV show that used the Rolling Stones song "Why Don't We Sing This Song All Together as a theme song. While the song was being played I remember a traveling group of players dancing across the horizon with an old fashioned horse and cart. It was all in silhouette. I too am at a loss as to the name of this show.

It was used as a theme song as I also was searching for it. It had a travelling wagon at the beginning of the show...

It's about two or three years too late, but the program was "Story Theatre" (spelled the Canadian way) and it was written mostly by Paul Sills.  It was produced in Vancouver and featured the talents of folks like Paul Sand, Bob Dishy, Alan Alda, Peter Bonerz, Hamilton Camp, Valerie Harper etc etc.  You can find it on Amazon.

It was a short lived show called "Story Theatre" back in '71.

I wish I knew the name of that show too, I've been looking for it everywhere. I know just the TV show that person's talking about. The music they picked to accompany the played were always excellent. There were some big stars that made appearances there too, and they were different every week. I remember Alan Alda was one of them. It was a really great show. If I ever find it I'll come back and let you know.

It was a short lived series about a group of traveling performers and I believe it took place in medieval times. The song was played in the beginning as a caravan rolled through the countryside. I cannot find the name of this series it was most likely british
