    • Synopsis
    • Modern Greece offers amazing insights into our own history and culture - the birthplace of democracy, and modern political thought. We uncover the centre of learning and philosophies that shaped the world, revealing the way in which ancient and modern empires, religions and nations have clashed in war and worked together in peace.

      Whether it is the ancient Oracles of Delphi or the continuing warm hospitality of Greek communities and families, Michael will guide us through a land with much to teach the modern viewer about our past and our future. With stunning photography of the beautiful Greek landscapes, historical and social insights, talking with the locals or even teaching us what kind of coffee to order, Dr Scott provides a tantalising insight into the country regarded as the birthplace of democracy.

      Dr Michael Scott is a Professor in Classics and Ancient History at the University of Warwick. He is also the author of several books on the ancient Mediterranean world as well as ancient Global History and has written and presented a range of TV and Radio documentaries for National Geographic, History Channel, ITV and then BBC.
