A dramatised exploration of a village in Crete
Written and produced by Louis MacNeice
Anoyia is the largest and one of the strangest villages in that strange island, Crete. It lies high on the side of legendary Mount Ida and its people have always been noted for their independent spirit; during the second world war they played a leading part in the Resistance, and in 1944 the village was burned to the ground
. by the Germans. Today the rubble heaps still outnumber the houses.
This programme is not so much a ' documentary ' as an attempt to recapture the impact of this place on a foreign visitor-for it is as peculiar in its way as the Minoan remains in the plain below.
