Joanna Lumley’s Greek Odyssey – tonight in Crete

Apologies for a second post so soon but it appears that in tonight’s episode Joanna will visit Crete and according to the blurb ‘… in the high remote mountains she spends time with the shepherds who played a key role fighting the Nazi occupation alongside British SOE Agent, Patrick Leigh Fermor – whose exploits became the basis for the film Ill Met by Moonlight.’ Don’t expect too much accuracy but I am sure that there will be oodles of gushing admiration for Paddy. 

Apparently ‘… Crete is also the birth place of Zeus and the home of raki, a local firewater that fuels traditional festivities.’ Enjoy but only available in the UK … and I am currently in Romania. 😦

    Just watching the wonderful Joanna on Crete. Had heard some of the Paddy Leigh Fermor story but will read up more. Thanks for your site. Neil Skinner in (not so) sunny Doncaster. p.s. What are you doing in Romania ? Spent a fascinating week in Transylvania back in 2006. Would love to reurn someday.
