From the Radio Times
Jamillah’s story begins when she discovers a dusty old lamp in her attic, makes a wish and yes, you’ve guessed it, a genie appears. She lives in modern London but her fun-loving genie whisks her off to ancient Baghdad where she meets Aladdin – then the adventures begin. The series opens with a double bill that involves, meeting Aladdin, squashing his eggs and trying to get him out of jail.

And from The Independent:
A new series based on the classic Arabian Nights story will air on Cbeebies and CBBC this weekend. It’s just the sort of diverse, positive series children need.
