To celebrate Easter, this morning we'll hear the story of The Rainbow Bear, a polar bear who wishes he was all the colours of the Rainbow. But when his wish comes true, he learns a very important lesson. With beautiful music by Stephen Barlow, this colourful story is read by Joanna Lumley and based on the book by Michael Morpurgo.
