Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/TheNoddyShop'' has The Ruby Reds and The Do-Wop Penguines, two sets of characters whose only roles in the show are to do this in the form of a short song. For example, when a toy told the others that the goblins escaped in the first episode, the former group sang "Not the goblins!".

* Creator/{{Netflix}} shows have this [[TropesAreNotBad as a feature]] in the form of audio description tracks, presumably so that the visually impaired can have an indication of what's happening on screen.

* TheBBC RadioDrama adaptation of ''Discworld/GuardsGuards'' handles this cleverly for the scene where the alleged king fights the dragon: Carrot can see over the crowd that's come out to watch the fight, but Vimes can't, so Carrot gives a play-by-play for his captain's benefit.

* The majority of ''[[Theatre/NatashaPierreAndTheGreatCometOf1812 Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812]]'' consists of characters narrating their actions, thoughts and emotions in the first or third person ("I will touch you on the cheek," "I blush scarlet," etc.), due to a good deal of the libretto being taken wholesale from the [[WarandPeace source novel]].

Added DiffLines:

* Between seasons 9-16 of ''WesternAnimation/ThomasTheTankEngine'', the series was extremely guilty of this, making it look like head writer Sharon Miller thought kids were morons who couldn't follow the action onscreen and needed to be told ''exactly'' what was happening. It got even worse in season 13, when the narration not only continued stating the obvious, but also ''spoke in rhyme'' along with the characters (who had gained individual voice actors starting in season 13). Thankfully, this was averted starting in season 17, when Andrew Brenner took over as head writer, restoring the sanities of many older fans.
