This Is Greece

Sundays from 6 January - 6.30pm Channel 073

Greece – the home of sun, sand, sea and most recently Mama Mia. It’s a place to relax drinking ice-cold super strong and super sweet coffee while playing tavli (backgammon). It’s a place to indulge the senses in a history that has spanned thousands of years and upon which much of the Mediterranean world has turned, before throwing yourself into the blissful seas and onto the sandy beaches. It’s a place in which to party while downing shouts of Greek ouzo, raki, tsipouro and other local brews. It’s a place where one is forced to reflect on the cruel impact of imperial world politics and conflict, but also a place in which to delve into a rich smorgasbord of religious traditions, and marvel at the genius and ingenuity of human kind. This is my Greece: a place to talk, dance, laugh, cry and ultimately, understand what it is to be human.
