Kytherians - keep Friday nights at 8pm free for the next 8 weeks.
Watch out particularly for the fifth show of this series - set in Greece. It is in fact wholly set on Kythera and will feature a number of local Kytherians who are known to diaspora Kytherians around the world.
8pm Friday 24th June 2005
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.
