In this documentary series Joanna Lumley travels to Greece to visit the region that has so influenced Western civilization.

Her first stop is the Acropolis which is painstakingly being restored after years of abuse and suffering the ravages of pollution. She experiences the nightlife, where she gets to throw flowers rather than plates. She then travels to Evia, the second largest island in Greece, where people in a small village speak with whistling sounds. Her next stop is the 4th century theater of Epidaurus and a tour given Nana Mouskouri. Then the Gates of Hades, ancient Olympia and Delphi rounds out her visit.
