    Santorini - Travel Video.
    DVD. Cities of the World. 60 Minutes. The characteristic white-walled buildings of Santorini are standing upon each other in happy disorder. The narrow alleys show us a new miracle at each turn. The top of our house is the other house's balcony, from where there is a perfect view of the dark blue water of the Aegean Sea. The venetian blinds summon the color of the blue sky, the rows of cubic houses are sometimes broken by a blue-domed temple or a windmill. The balconies are full of geraniums. The smell of gyros is in the air, and from the cafes we hear the bouzouki. The sight of the sunset from the taverns is unforgettable. The sun is scorching, one can smell the salty air and hear the seagulls, while down below the white boats sail towards their unknown destination.

    God's Lair: Rhodes Island - Travel Video.
    DVD. Flying Monk Films. 25 Minutes. A visit here would be incomplete without a trip to the island.The legend of the formation of the island is mirrored in the founding of the three main cities of Ialissos, Kamiros and Lindos. In the 6th century BC, they decided to form another city, Rhodes Town, which eventually became more prosperous than them. The most interesting of the cities is Lindos, a major tour destination. A visit to its castle is a must because of its spectacular views. Its white washed houses, central church with exquisite frescos and the old houses of the admiral, which have been converted into restaurants, make for a very pleasant stroll inside the city. The villages of the island are so remote that very few travelers visit them. Emponas, Ajos Isidoros and Siana have beautiful squares where the taverna is always the focal point. End your visit in the villages at sunset, at the ruined castle of Monolithos.

Since antiquity its unique location has brought it both power and wealth. On the northernmost tip of the island is the fascinating metropolis of Chora R?dos whose harbour entrance was once adorned by the Seventh Wonder Of The World, the Colossus Of Rhodes.

At the city's highest point is the huge palace of the Grand Master, the monumental junction of the Street Of The Knights and the command post of the Christian order. The Grand Master was the highest dignitary of the Order Of The Knights Of Malta, a lifetime office. The Street Of The Knights leads from the Grand Master Palace down the hill to the Hospital, a unique ensemble of Gothic medieval architecture set amid the Mediterranean. The main buildings of the various groups of knights were erected along the main street and it was here that the knights met and conferred according to their membership of various European regions. Rhodes is an island steeped in history as well as the calm lifestyle of the Mediterranean.

    Rhodes - Travel Video.
    DVD. 7 Days. 52 Minutes. Rhodes is the largest island of the Dodekanissa, a group of Greek islands located in the south eastern Aegean just off the west coast of Turkey. Since antiquity, its 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. Byzantines, Arabs, The Knights Of The Order Of St. John, Ottomans and Italians each influenced the ever-changing history of the island that was first settled here in 400 B.C. In 1320 the Knights Of St. John discovered an old fortified town here and immediately began to expand its fortress into the Grand Master Palace. In its present form the building is a reconstruction of the original palace that was first built on the site of a temple for the Sun King, Helios. After a total of seven Christian crusades were unable to defeat Islam and the re-conquering of Jerusalem failed, the Knights Of the Order Of St. John were driven out of Palestine. First they sought shelter in Cyprus and next conquered the island of Rhodes that was then under the rule of Portuguese pirates. To protect themselves from the Turks as well as from the pirates the new owners of the island built several mighty fortresses. Fil?rimos is located on the island's west coast close to the city of Rhodes. An avenue of pine trees leads to a huge concrete cross. Petalo?des, The Valley Of Butterflies has for many years been a popular attraction for tourists who usually arrive in organized groups. A creek that contains water throughout the year flows through a narrow valley and forms romantic waterfalls, cascades and small pools. At the foot of Tsambika Mountain there's a small church, one of many that are scattered across the island. The Greek Orthodox Church and its nuns, monks and patriarchs have helped to preserve the region's language and culture. Rhodes is an island that bewitches all who experience it.

    Rhodes - Travel Video - DVD.
    Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. According to legend the Colossus Of Rhodes once towered above the picturesque harbour of Rhodes, a Greek island located off the south west coast of Asia Minor. The huge statue was one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Under the rule of the Knights of the Order of St. John, the Palace Of The Grand Masters, that is located next to the Knight's Hospital, was the most important building on the island for more than two hundred years. The Palace Of The Grand Masters was not only the administrative centre of the Order of St. John, it was also of great social importance. Many years previously the Knights' Road was the most important street in the medieval city and it was there that most of the Knights and Orders resided. Marble reliefs depicting the knights' coats of arms adorn the impressive and proud facades of the buildings. Ever since the Knights of the Order of St. John took over the city Rhodes has been dominated by various towers. Most of them were used for defensive purposes while others are the remains of Turkish occupation. When the sun sets above the Aegean, Rhodes is revealed in all of its magical and historic glory.

    Lindos (Island of Rhodes) - Travel Video - DVD.
    Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. Its unique location is not the sole reason that the picturesque town of Lindos has become known as one of the most fascinating locations on the Greek island of Rhodes. Its narrow, intimate lanes are flanked by centuries-old houses, the former residences of captains, ship-owners and wealthy traders. During the Ottoman period Lindos was one of the country's most important ports and it still has a strong association with the sea as do the cultural treasures of this enchanting town. Lindos' famous landmark, the Acropolis, is located above the town. The Acropolis was important not only for those of ancient Greek religious belief but also for those of the Christian faith. According to legend the apostle Paul came ashore beneath the temple in 51 A.D. Its shoreline location as well as the beauty of the town plus its combination of medieval buildings and ancient ruins all add up to why Lindos is such a popular destination. Lindos was once a great maritime power that possessed its own colonies in the Mediterranean and the enchanting atmosphere of this special place can still be experienced today.

    Planet Food Greece -  Travel Video.
    DVD. Globe Trekker. 60 Minutes. Angela May's culinary journey through Greece takes her from the bustling capital of Athens, to historic Thessaloniki, and to the islands of Lesvos and Crete, on an exploration of Greece's delicious and healthy Mediterranean cuisine. The classical civilization of the Ancient Greeks still influences modern Greece, and in Athens, a melting pot of tastes and traditions, Angela is treated to a feast served in the elegant style that Athenians would have been accustomed to 2000 years ago. Angela visits the central food market in the busy streets beneath the Acropolis, sampling souvlaki and learning how to prepare and the Greek favorite, moussaka. Traveling to the island of Lesvos, Angela discovers how the aniseed-based Ouzo came to be created here when all the local vines were wiped out by the phylloxera plague in the 19th century. Angela then heads out to sea with a local fisherman to catch octopus for dinner, before finding out from a local cooking expert the secret of making the finest "spoon sweets". In Greece's second largest city Thessaloniki, Angela meets Greek TV cook and singer songwriter F.T. Bletsas, who explains how the city's historic position on the major trade routes between East and West has influenced the regional cuisine. He demonstrates one of his favorite recipes, learned from his grandmother, using spicy stuffed peppers and other vegetables. Heading on to the island of Crete, Angela discovers how the local people have one of the healthiest diets in the world. Angela joins a shepherd tending a flock of sheep in the mountains, before ending her trip learning how to make a delicious rabbit stifado, a traditional stew.

    Thera & Santorini - Travel Video.
    DVD. Legacy of Ancient Civilizations. 30 Minutes. If you look at a map of Greece, you will see that nearly a quarter of its territory consists of dozens and dozens of islands in the Aegean Sea. In ancient times, one of these islands was Thera. It would not be especially notable -- except for one thing. This island was the site of one of the most massive volcanic eruptions in history. After it happened, Thera was no longer one island, but three -- one of which is today known as Santorini. When the eruption occurred in about 1500 BC, a civilization was wiped out. It was a sophisticated culture much influenced by the Minoan civilization on Crete some 60 miles away. Thera's artists painted colorful frescoes of animals, sport, and war, its women had a passion for jewelry and bright clothes and its engineers constructed a remarkable system of running water piped into each dwelling. Yet although volcanoes destroy, they also preserve. The eruption on Thera buried an entire city under a layer of ash and pumice, and when that city was rediscovered in the 1960s, it proved to be almost perfectly preserved, thus giving archaeologists a fabulous window into life in ancient times.

    Troy and Pergamum - Travel Video
    DVD. Legacy of Ancient Civilizations. 30 Minutes. Though it is today a region of Turkey, the coastal area of Anatolia, or Asia Minor, was a thriving center of Greek culture in ancient times. Two cities there especially stand out -- one for its connection to a work of literature, one for its connection to a work of art. The fabled city of Troy and its legendary ten-year siege by forces from mainland Greece became the subject of one of the cornerstones of western literature, Homer's Iliad. The frieze of the Great Altar of the city of Pergamum, now in a museum in Berlin, is one of the finest surviving examples of Hellenistic sculpture. These cities flourished many centuries apart, but their combined legacies give us today a remarkable glimpse into ancient Anatolian civilization.

    Carthage and the Phoenicians - Travel Video.
    DVD. Legacy of Ancient Civilizations. 30 Minutes. Archaeological evidence has shown that the Phoenician civilization began to develop around 3000 BC and that it was trading with the Egyptians shortly after that. But it wasn't until about 1200 BC that the Phoenicians began to establish the great commercial empire that has made them celebrated. Their ships, equipped for both commerce and war, dominated the Mediterranean, some say that they sailed as far as Britain and may have even voyaged all the way around Africa. Two of the most important products they traded were a purple dye made from the murex, a type of shellfish, and the timber of cedar trees. The Egyptians used the cedars of Lebanon for coffins, ships, and other artifacts, and King Solomon used them to build the Great Temple in Jerusalem. Originally the Phoenicians ruled from several city-states located in what is now Lebanon, but they went on to establish colonies in the western Mediterranean. Their most illustrious colony was the city of Carthage in North Africa, which waged war against Rome until being defeated in 146 BC. The Phoenicians' greatest contribution to civilization was the refinement of a standardized phonetic alphabet that they passed along to the Greeks. The Greeks introduced it to Europe, where it became the basis for the alphabet we use today.

    The Minoans - Travel Video.
    DVD. Legacy of Ancient Civilizations. 30 Minutes. One of the most powerful myths handed down by the ancient Greeks tells of the fabled King Minos, who ordered the construction of a vast, mazelike building called the labyrinth. Within this structure, he imprisoned the monster known as the Minotaur, a creature with the head of a bull and the body of a man that was fed on human sacrifice. For centuries this tale remained no more than legend. And then in the 1890s an archaeologist named Arthur Evans began uncovering, on the island of Crete, the remains of a civilization that flourished between 2500 and 1350 BC. To Evans's surprise, he found the ruins of a great palace with hundreds of interconnected rooms and hallways -- a building so complex that it could easily have impressed visitors as having been as bewildering as a maze. Not only that, the sacred animal of the people who lived there was a bull! Evans called these people "Minoans," after the legendary monarch, and today, thanks to the studies of Evans and others, we know a great deal about them. For centuries, the Minoans had a thriving maritime trade as their ships controlled the sea lanes between Greece, Syria, and Egypt. Their crafts workers were experts in pottery, ivory, metal, and gemstones, their artists painted colorful frescoes and their architects built great palaces, such as the one discovered by Evans at Knossos. The Minoan civilization disappeared rather suddenly for reasons that are still unclear. Some experts believe they may have been the victims of a gigantic tidal wave that was unleashed by the explosion of a volcano on an island nearby.

    MATKHANDOUSH Libya - Travel Video.
    DVD. Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. Situated in southern Libya is a remarkable, dried out river valley, the Wadi Matkhandoush. At first sight, although the valley looks rather insignificant, it actually contains a unique treasure of Mankind, a treasure that lay hidden for thousands of years until Italian archaeologist and palaeontologist Fabrizio Mori discovered many fascinating carvings in the region's rocks. Most of the images date back to the Bubalus epoch, which is easily recognizable due to the depictions of the 'Old Buffalo' that are related to the Cape Buffalo of today. Why the early inhabitants of the desert mountains of Akakus carved images of the indigenous wildlife into so many rock walls of the river valley remains a mystery. Even so, their creators must have been extremely diligent as tens of thousands of their images have been catalogued. The countless rock paintings make the dried out river valley look like a huge open air museum that features all five periods of Saharan rock art. There are also pictures that date back to the Garamantes, a legendary and mysterious tribe that dominated trans-Sahara trade for many centuries. The discovery of the rock paintings has meant that a once unknown period of the history of Mankind has been preserved for future generations.
