Follow CBeebies’ Patrick Lynch as he uses a pioneering mix of live cinema and theatre to take you on a thrilling ride across the magical world of Ancient Greece. With miniature sets he directs the lights, camera and action in front of your eyes to show the Cyclops, the Siege of Troy, the Floating Island, the Land of the Dead and the whirlpools and mythical creatures that make up this earliest of fantasy books, The Odyssey.
Multiple cameras magnify in wide screen the table-top puppetry, down to the smallest detail, turning a storm-in-a-teacup into an Aegean tempest. Dramatizing the fundamental fable hidden in this classic of world-literature, There & Back Again proves no matter how for you roam, there’s no place like Homer.
