Who were the Greeks BBC2?

Another programme tonight on BBC2 about the Greeks. It seems that the British media are obsessed with the Germans and the Greeks. I would imagine that there have been more programmes made about first the Germans and then the Greeks? Or am I wrong.

Saying that the documentary tonight did not tell us anything we didn't know? The main theme was about how the Greeks invented many things and how ancient city states used slavery to run their economies. This was of course not a nice thing but the suggestion was that Greece was unique in this phenomenon? The presenter forgot of course that the USA economy dependent on the abhorrent system of forced slavery.

Hoping that subsequent programmes will tell us something new?
