At 7pm on Tuesday 12 February 2019, at The Hellenic Centre, I will be talking about the making of my latest BBC2 TV series, Ancient Invisible Cities, in which real-life exploration of hard to reach ancient locations combine with high resolution laser-scanning and virtual reality to open up spaces and landscapes never before seen on TV. Focusing in particular on the Ancient Invisible Cities: Athens programme, I will not only reveal some of the behind the scenes secrets from the making of the documentary, but also argue for how its blend of reality and virtual reality is helping to solve the long recognised ‘problem’ of how best to visualise ancient Greece on TV.
