    Cyprus and Crete Music - Travel Video - DVD.
    Globe Trekker. Globe Trekker K.T. Comer travels around the Mediterranean island of Cyprus. Beginning her adventures in the southern resort of Ayia Napa, she checks out the beach party scene, before moving on to the ruins of Kourion to catch a midsummer's day festival in honor of the ancient Greek god Apollo. K.T. then travels to the island's most revered Greek Orthodox monastery at Kykkos, before heading to Nicosia, the world's last divided capital city, straddling the UN-patrolled buffer zone between Greek-dominated southern Cyprus and the breakaway Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus. After meeting and listening to the inspirational Bicommunal Choir for Peace, equally made up of Greek and Turkish Cypriot singers, she ends her journey in Kyrenia on the northern coast. Meanwhile, Globe Trekker Adela Ucar Innerarity visits the Greek island of Crete to learn more about the island's World War II history and experience its stunning natural beauty along one of Europe's most popular walking trails, the E4. Her journey begins in Hania, a bustling harbor town with Venetian and Turkish architecture. Adela's visit coincides with the commemoration of the Battle of Crete of 1941. She meets with veterans of the war and retraces their experiences, from Maleme in the west where the battle began, through the rugged interior and over the towering White Mountains before reaching the southern coast at Hora Sfakion. From Hora Sfakion Adela follows the E4 trail, heading west to the idyllic fishing village of Loutro and Agia Roumelli. Rejoining the trail at Sougia, she visits the Byzantine ruins at Lissos before continuing on to Paleochora where she ends her journey on the stunning Elafonisi beach.

    Agia (Crete) - Travel Video - DVD.
    Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. The ancient Minoan site of Agia Tri?da on the Greek island of Crete owes its name to a nearby church that dates back to the 14th century. In many ways the settlement is quite unique as its architecture does not conform to traditional Minoan design. In contrast to the much larger structure of the Phaistos Palace that is situated only a few kilometres away, the site has revealed an abundance of fascinating treasures. Agia Tri?da's famous objects and works of art are contained in the Egypt Museum in ?raklion. In around 1400 B.C. the Minoan culture came to an end and the exact reason for the decline of this advanced civilization will probably never be known. The Minoan culture reached its peak between 1700 and 1350 B.C. when palaces, country houses and settlements were established throughout the length and breadth of the island. Due to the completion of a well thought out road system and the further development of existing harbours, the foundation of an extremely successful trading system was created. For thousands of years the Minoan ruins lay covered by the sands of time and it was only as a result of excavations around the neighbouring Phaistos Palace that brought about their discovery. The Mycenean civilisation replaced that of the Minoans and they subsequently constructed their own buildings above the walls of the once splendid and flourishing settlement of Agia Tri?da.

    Arkadi (Crete) - Travel Video - DVD.
    Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. On the Greek island of Crete, 23 kilometers south east of Rethimnon on a small plateau at the foot of the Psiloritis Mountains, is the Ark?di Monastery, a building that contains a moving history of the island's struggle for liberty against the Turks. The remote monastery was built in 1587 at the time of the `Cretian Renaissance' and in November, 1866, nine hundred and sixty-four Cretians secured themselves within its walls in protest against the continued Turkish occupation of the island. Fifteen thousand Turkish solders assailed the monastery and an unequal fight began. One of the monastery's brave defender's set a fuse to the monastery's ammunition store which resulted in a massive explosion killing both attackers and defenders alike. Although the Ark?di Monastery doesn't contain any spectacular works of art, it possesses its own unique atmosphere and one that recalls a courageous struggle for the liberty of Crete.

    Gortyn (Crete) - Travel Video - DVD.
    Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. South of the centre of Crete are the remains of a ruined basilica, the Christian remains of Gortys' former glory. For the construction of the basilica in the 6th and the 7th centuries many of the architectural elements of the surrounding ancient ruins were also used. During construction there was no lack of decorative old capitals, as Gortys was once one of the most important cities in Crete. Gortys became famous among archaeologists due to a sensational discovery within the walls of a nearby Roman Odeion. Twelve stone blocks that bore inscriptions from the Classical period of around 500 years B.C. were built into the wall of a small amphitheatre by its Roman creators. The stones contained sections of the great legal code of Gortys. In using this material the Romans managed to preserve one of the best kept legal texts of ancient Greece. Although nature has buried many of its treasures, even today a few magnificent statues still manage to reflect the former size and wealth of the city of Gortys.

    Heraklion (Crete) - Travel Video - DVD.
    Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. Iraklion The picturesque harbor of Iraklion welcomes those arriving by ship at Crete's greatest city that is also the fourth largest harbor in Greece. In common with much of the history of this city, the imposing castle located at the harbour dates back to Venetian times and was built between 1523 and 1540. Today the archaeological search for ruins from the time of the ancient Minoers has become increasingly more important. In addition, work on the ruins that date from the earlier history of the town, when it was ruled by Turkey, has also gained momentum. The remains that date back to Venetian rule, such as some sections of the massive town wall and the Loggia, are part of the town's most well preserved buildings. Built between 1626 and 1628, with its classic beauty the Venetian Loggia is one of the city's most beautiful buildings. During the 17th century the aristocracy used this building as a kind of social meeting place, a club house and celebration hall. Today, it is considered to be a fine example of traditional Venetian architecture. The Morosini Fountain dates back to Venice's prosperous years. It was once part of the town's urban water supply and was named after an important civil servant. Although the city has moved with the times and developed into an important centre of tourism, it has managed to retain a significant part of its history. Thus the old town of Iraklion owes its unique flair to the splendid architectural relics of the Venetians.

    Knossos (Crete) - Travel Video - DVD.
    Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. Around 7 kilometers southeast of Heraklion on the Greek island of Crete, is the Palace of Knoss?s, the largest of all the Minoan palaces, located on the picturesque, partly tree-covered Kefala Hill. As parts of the palace have been rebuilt, its former splendour makes a visit to Knoss?s even more worthwhile. At the beginning of the 20th century, large scale excavations of the former Minoan palace were carried out under the leadership of Englishman, Arthur Evans. In just three years, Evans and his team of archaeologists excavated an area of almost 20,000 square metres. Visitors can move around the newly built areas of the palace and imagine the former life of the Minoans. Almost all of the palace's 1200 rooms and splendid inner courtyards are asymmetrical which is in contrast to the subsequent Ancient Greek epochs of strict symmetrical architecture. As with other Minoan palaces in Phaistos and Malia, around 1700 B.C., the first palace in Knoss?s was destroyed by a devastating earthquake. Around 100 years later, the palace was rebuilt and was simply known as the `New Palace'. These buildings have also been referred to as the `Labyrinth of the Minotaurs'. But if the legendary Minotaurs actually resided in the Palace of Knoss?s, it has yet to be confirmed by the world of archaeology!

    Phaistos (Crete) - Travel Video - DVD.
    Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. The 4000 year old ruins of the Minoan Palace of Phaistos are scattered over a wide area of a picturesque hillside on the island of Crete. The first archaeological excavations took place between 1900 and 1909 and it soon became evident that these ruins, as well as further discoveries of the Minoan Epoch that date from around 1900 B.C., were the remains of the first highly developed culture of Europe. The multi-layered ruins and walls of the palace as they appear today are similar to the numerous cultural influences of ancient Crete. Libyan Megalith constructions with large limestone blocks combine with the wood, quarry stone and clay plaster of the semi-timbered buildings. Unlike classic Greek architecture, the Minoan constructions are not dominated or influenced by strict symmetrical lines. The facades of the buildings were given little importance by the people of Crete who instead focused on comfort and luxury from within, a fact demonstrated by the discovery of baths and a highly developed drainage system. No one could have foreseen that the once prosperous Minoan culture that left its traces in Phaistos would later be considered by historians to be the beginning of Europe's cultural development.

    Samaria (Crete) Greece - DVD.
    Nature Wonders. 10 Minutes. The western region of Crete is the most mountainous and untouched part of the island, which is mainly due to the Samari? Canyon, Europe's longest canyon that is also famous for its magnificent scenery and exceptional natural beauty. In order to protect the canyon, whose entrance lies on the southern side of the Omalos Plateau, the Samari? National Park was founded in 1962. More than 450 different types of plants, among them 70 varieties that are unique to the region, make Samari? an even more remarkable and unique natural habitat. In antiquity, the island's splendid trees, including Cypress, Pine and Crete Maple, were transported to the Greek mainland. One of the most famous inhabitants of Samari? Canyon is the Crete bezoar goat that is also known as the kri-kri. The surrounding rocks are home to a total of 30 different species of birds, among them such endangered species as the eagle, hawk, wild goose and bearded vulture. Kissed by the Greek sunshine beneath a clear blue sky, the original beauty of Samari? Canyon is indeed a true natural wonder.

    Cyclades Islands - Travel Video - DVD.
    Vista Point. 26 Minutes. Otherwise known as The Pearls Of Greece, the Cyclades Islands are located in the heart of the South Aegean that flows around its former centre, the holy island of Delos. Of more than two hundred and twenty islands, only twenty-five are populated. Situated in the centre of the Cyclades group of islands, Mykonos is a former pirate village and for some years has been a meeting place for artists, V.I.P.'s and the international glitterati. Five old windmills dominate the picturesque bay of Mykonos. In earlier times the town's millers supplied flour to soldiers, merchants and even pirates. A special attraction is the district of Little Venice, the style of its buildings serving as a reminder of when the Venetians took possession of the island. Delos is known as the Pompeii of the Aegean and its deserted temples, public buildings, houses and streets still conjure up the atmosphere of this once-flourishing cultural and trading town. On Naxos, the largest of the Greek islands, the Greek gods have created a masterpiece of nature with bubbling springs and gently-flowing streams, colourful fields and fertile valleys and an abundance of water, fruit and vegetables. Santorini is the most southerly of the Cyclades islands and the location of the mythical lost island of Atlantis. It's also a breathtaking island paradise of rock, lava, sea and light. The unique proportions of Santorini are due to a natural disaster that had a devastating effect when over 3,500 years ago a volcanic eruption sank most of the island beneath the sea. Was it not the Greek god, Poseidon, who threw a handful of rocks onto the seabed that took root and created the Cyclades? It is no wonder that these dreamy islands are a place of myth and legend!

The picturesque former pirate village of Myknos is a meeting place for artists, V.I.P.'s and the international glitterati. Five old windmills dominate its picturesque bay. Cyclades villages are characterized by brilliant white houses with green, blue, red and yellow window frames and doors set off by the deep rich blue of the Aegean. A special attraction is the district of Little Venice- the style of its buildings serve as a reminder of when the Venetians took possession of the island. Birthplace of Apollo and Artemis, Delos is known as the `Pompeii Of The Aegean,' its long since deserted temples, public buildings, houses and streets conjuring up the atmosphere of this once-flourishing cultural and trading town. Naxos is the largest of the Cyclades islands, with bubbling springs and gently-flowing streams, colorful fields and fertile valleys plus a wealth of water, fruit and vegetables. On Paros, the jewel of the Greek Orthodox church, Katapoliani is the island's oldest and largest church and dates back to the 6th century. Legendary location of the mythical lost island of Atlantis, Santorini is the most southern of the Cyclades Islands, a breathtaking paradise of rock, lava, sea and light where survival has meant a constant battle against the forces of nature. Its unique dimensions are due to a natural disaster of devastating proportion when over 3,500 years ago a volcanic eruption sank most of the island beneath the sea. With places arid, with places fertile, all sights are a feast to the eye. It was the Greek god, Poseidon who threw a handful of rocks onto the seabed, which took root and created the Cyclades.

    Delos (Cyclades Islands) - Travel Video - DVD.
    Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. During ancient times the Cyclades island of Delos was the flourishing centre of Greek culture. Greece's most extensive archaeological site covers the entire island and since 1872 has been frequented by countless archaeologists. Greek legend has it that this now-deserted island was the birthplace of the gods Apollo and Artemis. Offering wonderful ocean views, the amphitheatre dates back to the third century B.C. and accommodated around 5500 spectators. Not all of the island's temples were dedicated to Greek gods and a particularly well-preserved sanctuary of the so-called `foreign gods' formed part of a beautiful temple that was dedicated to the Egyptian goddess, Isis. The lower plateaus on the western side of Kithos Hill contain numerous important cult sites. One of these sanctuaries was the centre of the Hera Cult, the Archaic Heraion, that established itself in 500 B.C. Beautifully restored mosaics with the Phoenician symbol of the goddess Tanith decorate one of the most impressively furnished houses on the island, the House Of Dolphins. The island's ruins indicate its former cosmopolitan nature with its Egyptian, Italian, Phoenician and Jewish traders but due to the destruction of its buildings and the creation of new centers of trade elsewhere, Delos gradually became deserted.

    Dodecanese Islands - Travel Video - DVD.
    Vista Point. 26 Minutes. Dodecanese is the name of a group of Greek islands that is located in the south east of the Aegean just off the Turkish coast. It warrants more than its name of `Twelve Islands' as it contains more than nineteen inhabited and around fifty small uninhabited islands. K?s is the green pearl of the Aegean, an historic oasis beneath the Greek sun. Not the largest of the Dodekannissa Islands but certainly one of its most fascinating. The capital of the island is Chora K?s. Following their arrival from Jerusalem in the 14th century, the Order Of The Knights Of Malta built a huge fortified complex in the town. The city's spacious square is surrounded by numerous buildings plus a museum and there are stone busts and statues of the Roman and Hellenistic eras that offer a good insight into the imaginative culture of a golden age. In the square a number of steps lead up to the city's cathedral, the Agia Paraskevi. Not a large structure but extremely modern and well located in the centre of the town. Only four kilometers from the city high in the Dikeos Mountains is one of the island's most important sights, the Asklipion, an ancient hospital and sanctuary. It was here that the Greeks worshipped the god of medicine who was later named ?skulap by the Romans. Rhodes was one of the most important cities in antiquity and fended off attack due to its impressively tall defensive walls. The mighty-looking fortification was in reality a deception as it was far from sturdy but its many defensive towers and pinnacles had their desired effect. Lindos is the most beautiful village in Rhodes with Paulus Bay and an acropolis that is located high above the sea. It was here that the sun was born and where the gods, knights and tourists have always sought good fortune and been captivated with the enchanting islands of the Dodekanissa.

    DVD. 7 Days. 52 Minutes. Dodekanissa is the name of a group of Greek islands that is located in the south east of the Aegean just off the Turkish coast and it contains more than 19 inhabited and around 50 small uninhabited islands. The island of K?s is known as the `green pearl of the Aegean', an historic oasis beneath the Greek sun. Although not the largest of the Dodekannissa Islands it is certainly one of its most fascinating. The capital of the island is Chora K?s and nearly half the island's inhabitants live there. A modern collection of sculptures point to the island's most famous son, Hypocrates, whose greatest legacy is the Hippocratic Oath of today. Four kilometers from the city high in the Dikeos Mountains is one of the island's most important sights, the Asklipion, an ancient hospital and sanctuary. It was there that the Greeks worshipped the god of medicine who was later named ?skulap by the Romans. Symi is a beautiful island only four sea miles away from the Turkish coast and 42 kilometers north west of Rhodes.The island is characterized by its yellow Neo-Classical houses with their shutters and doors in blue and red as well as their tiled roofs. Rhodes is the largest island of the Dodekanissa. Since antiquity this special location has brought it both power and wealth. On the northernmost tip of the island is the fascinating metropolis of Chora R?dos whose harbor entrance was once adorned by the Seventh Wonder Of The World, the Colossus of Rhodes. For more than 200 years the Grand Master Palace and the Knight's Hospital were the island's most important buildings and today the Order's well-preserved hospital is open to the general public. It was in Rhodes that the sun was born and where gods, knights and tourists have always sought good fortune and have been captivated by the enchanting islands of the Dodekanissa.

    Kos Island - Travel Video - DVD.
    Vista Point. 26 Minutes. K?s is an historic island oasis beneath the Greek sun. Not the largest of the Dodekannissa Islands but certainly one of its most fascinating, with endless sandy beaches and an ancient heritage. The capital of the island is Chora K?s and for two thousand years it has been the nerve centre of the island. The city once suffered devastating earthquakes and the island was plagued by numerous invaders including the Romans, Byzantines, Venetians, the Knights of St. John and finally, the Turks. The Platia Elefther?as is the main square of today's K?s and contains the Archaeological Museum that is housed in a futuristic looking Italian building that dates back to the 1930's. Four kilometres from the city high in the Dikeos Mountains is one of the island's most important sights, the Asklipion, an ancient hospital and sanctuary. A winding road leads to the village of K?falos that from below looks like a small fortified complex. Its white houses and narrow alleys are free of traffic and it's as though time has stood still. Formerly a village of fishermen, agriculture is now the main source of income for the local people. K?falos has much historical significance as it was built on the ruins of the first capital of the island and Hypocrates was born here in 460 B.C. Antim?chia Castle was built in the 13th century by the Venetians and later expanded by the Knights Of St. John. Its mighty external walls are most impressive but only a few cisterns and two small chapels remain. Fascinating landscapes and the historic monuments of many ?poques make the Greek island of K?s a sparkling jewel of the Aegean.
