The Gods have spoken and told us this is one of those travel movies that you will never want to get rid of. This is an experience as if you are there. Joanna Lumley brings us this adventure through history from Athen's to Delphi and all in between. You walk through and around the Acropolis and learn how it is being tenderly restored. You spend some time at night living the Athen's night life.
Now, Joanna does not hold any punches and you do see the good, the bad, and ugly of the Greek peninsular. Greece is going through some truly challenging times financially and traditionally. In the big cities you have the financial troubles but it is in the villages that some of their traditions are being lost for all time. Traditions that have gone back some 1,500 years but because it is not being taught to their young it will be lost forever.
You learn the history of the Greeks when you travel to Delphi and the land of the Gods. You will see the area of the land of Zeus and all the Gods. You will travel to Olympia and experience the land of the first Olympics. This is a series that you would want to own and learn from. This is something that can be used in the classroom to supplement your lesson.
The experience you gather is enough to make you want to put Greece on your bucket list if you have never traveled there.
