Joanna Lumley’s Greek Odyssey

7:30pm Sunday, December 9 on TV One

Following on from the successful Joanna Lumley’s Nile, iconic British actress Joanna Lumley heads off to one of the most diverse and surprising countries in Europe – Greece.

Keen to explore both ancient and modern Greece, Joanna visits the most significant sites in the empire to find out more about the way Greeks lived centuries ago, contrasted with the people of Greece today.

On the way to the Gates of Hades, where she tosses a pearl into the sea in respect to the gods of old, she also drops in on an Athens nightclub where the city’s youth spend wild nights and ridiculous amounts of money.

Insightful, clever and endearing, Joanna continues to do what she does best – show places and tell the stories of people who have so much to share.
