Bacchus Uncovered (metaphorically speaking)


#1

We watched a fantastic programme on BBC4 yesyerday, which I highly recommend! For those who haven’t watched it, it’s an exploration of the god Bacchus, and the centrality of wine to development of culture. Fascinating stuff! :wine_glass::+1:

Thanks for the heads up! Downloading it now as I type … now to find a spare moment to watch it…!

Hope you enjoy! :grinning:
I was part fascinated part bemused by the young Greek guy dressed in 65kg worth of bells (the kind cows wear in the Alps), and wearing a weird mask which made it look like a squid attached itself to his face… It was worth it just for this spectacle! :fearful:

I’ve seen that film! John Hurt, right?

Ha Ha! But no, far worse! :grinning:
