This series tells the stories of the Greek gods and heroes, vividly narrated by one of today’s greatest storytellers, Sir Peter Ustinov. Filmed in Greece at Mount Olympus, Athens, Delphi, Olympia, and on the islands of Delos and Samathras, these programs retrace the origins of Greek mythology and explain the rivalries between the gods. The programs explore the human search for meaning in the chaotic forces of nature and the universe above, and remind contemporary audiences of the relevance of myths and legends for our own time.

The Greeks worshipped Dionysus and honored him widely and often. In fact, Greek drama was written as part of the great Dionysian celebrations. In this program, we learn about Semele, Dionysus’ mother, and the efforts of Hermes and Apollo to save the baby’s life; the purification of Dionysus; how mortals received the gift of the grape, and the dangers it can cause; and how Dionysus freed Hera from Hephaestus’ golden net. Also discussed are Theseus, Ariadne, and the labyrinth; the marriage of Ariadne and Dionysus; Dionysus and Silenus; and Dionysus and the Maenads. (26 minutes)
