The Singing Ringing Tree: To win the love of beautiful but conceited princess, a prince sets out to search for the Singing Ringing Tree which she deeply craves. He finds it in an enchanted garden which is ruled by an evil dwarf. The dwarf gives him the tree, subject to one condition the prince must win the princess love before nightfall. If he should fail, he will be transformed into a bear... and this comes to pass.

The Tinderbox: Based on the fairytale by Hans Christian Andersen, The Tinderbox tells the story of a poor soldier who meets a witch on his return from battle. The witch promises him gold if he recovers an old tinderbox from a hollow tree. After a quarrel he makes off with the gold without handing over the tinderbox and sets himself up in a neighbouring town. His generosity enables the town to flourish but when his fortune dwindles he is left only with the friendship of the poor and the tinderbox...

All versions have been sourced using newly-remastered digital transfers and both contain a music-only track and image gallery. The Singing Ringing Tree also has the featurette Interview with a Princess
