Kytherians - keep Friday nights at 8pm free for the next 8 weeks.

Kythera is the idyllic Greek island of Aphrodite, goddess of love. But what is the reality of living on such a small island? Pria Viswalingam meets both locals - who are scratching a living from the soil - and the new arrivals who have come in search of a dream. The stuff of dreams is what supplies the people of Kythera with a future and a past. An island of legends and myths that fertilise the island's robust grapevine which keeps today's gossip spicy and abundant. Join Pria and Aphrodite as they wander the lanes and stir the senses of a relatively unspoilt Greek Isle reclining amidst the sapphire-blue waters of the Mediterranean.
