JOANNA LUM­LEY’S GREEK ODYSSEY

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Front Page -

ABC1, Tues­day, 8.30pm ★★★★ Joanna Lum­ley be­gins her jour­ney through Greece, ‘‘the birth­place of civil­i­sa­tion and mod­ern Euro­pean cul­ture’’. While Greece has given the world drama, democ­racy and lan­guage, it hasn’t given the world much by way of bud­get­ing skills. Look at the Parthenon — how long has it been around and they still haven’t fin­ished it? Boom, tish. Lum­ley de­liv­ers some great in­sights into an­cient Greece and the Greece of today. One Greek says, ‘‘We live for today.’’
