Following in the footsteps of the ancient Greeks, Joanna visits some of the most significant sites of their empire. She discovers the British influence on these islands, from the occupation of Corfu to its connection with Lord Byron. And she meets the diversity of people who call Greece home, including famous singer Nana Mouskouri, the flower-throwing nightclub goers of Athens, and the shepherds of Crete whose forefathers helped defeat the Nazis.
