Featuring Bernard Cribbins, the children’s show features the adventures of Old Jack and his trusty sidekick Salty the Dog on board their boat the Rainbow.

The 85-year-old actor said: “I’ve filmed in a lot of locations throughout my career, but there’s something about the sea air, the beauty and the friendliness in Staithes that makes it a special place to be.”

The show has been credited with helping the village see a rise in the number of visitors.

Old Jack’s Boat is shown each day at 5.40pm on the digital channel CBeebies.
