There and Back Again - An Odyssey
Lyngo Theatre Company
First written down 3,000 years ago, the Odyssey is the classic of classics, the mother of all stories, the ultimate source of myths and legends full of one-eyed giants, ghosts, Greeks, powerful magic and great adventure.
Follow CBeebies Patrick Lynch as he launches Ulysses and his companions on a fantastic voyage which comes to life on a big screen while he plays with sand, stones, boats, bowls, fire and water. The use of multiple cameras will magnify table-top props down to the smallest detail to turn a storm-in-a-teacup into an Aegean tempest, laying out the fundamental fable hidden in this classic of world-literature and proving that no matter how far you roam, there's no place like Homer.
