The Greek War of Independence broke out 150 years ago, in March 1821. Under Byron's inspiration many young men from this country followed him to Greece as the revolt against the Turks got under way.
But the Greece they had imagined from their knowledge of the classics was one thing; the guerrillas, priests, and politicians they actually encountered were another. Some returned home disillusioned, but others stayed to witness the rebirth of the modern Greek nation.
Narrated by Denis Goacher with SEAN ARNOLD , SEAH BARRETT RICHARD GRIFFITHS and BRIAN HEWLETT as the British volunteers who took part in the war
Produced by ADRIAN JOHNSON
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
