Spirit of Place - Lawrence Durrell's Greece (documentary film)

Spotted this link on Corfu Forum (thanks to the posting by "Bunny")

Spirit of Place Lawrence Durrell's Greece (documentary, video) - BBC Arts documentary, 1976

"In 1976 Peter Adam took Lawrence Durrell , author of several Greek island books, back to Greece Their journey took them to Corfu, Rhodes, Crete and Hydra" (BBC).

'The Greece that I knew as a young and aggressive poet has changed. Nevertheless I feel there might be some point in trying to recollect and perhaps re-create a little bit of the Greece which is not finished yet and gone for good, and whose ghost still rises up to afflict me from time to time.'
