Greece is where western civilisation began; drama, democracy and language to science, philosophy and medicine all originated from here. This country has given the world so much, which has left an enduring legacy on the fabric of our everyday life.
Joanna Lumley embarks on her own Greek Odyssey to explore both the ancient and modern aspects to Greece a land rich in history, myth and romance. Following in the footsteps of the ancient Greeks, she visits some of the most significant sites of the empire from the Greek islands to its far northern borders, from Mount Olympus to Corfu, exploring the history, Gods, beliefs, myths and legends which hail from this most significant chapter in European history.
Joanna Lumleys Greek Odyssey has all the panache, flavour and excitement of travel as her much-loved journey up the River Nile. Now, like then, she has a knack of showing us the places and meeting the people who have so much to tell us, immersing us in cultures so far from our own.
