National Geographic Television has announced it is developing a major multi-hour television series, The Greeks (w/t), that aims to re-examine the role of Greece in world history and offers up a series of new discoveries. The six-hour documentary series is produced by NGT with Greek broadcaster SKAI. Each episode of the series will begin with a groundbreaking new discovery in archaeology or forensic investigation that opens up a new perspective on the ancient Greeks. Other partnerships include the Ministry of Culture of Greece, the National Hellenic Research Foundation and the Hellenic Centre for Marine Research, which all brought NGT unprecedented and exclusive access to Greek architectural and artistic treasures and archaeological sites.
