In this landmark series, we re-tell the stories of the Odyssey and Jason and the Argonaut for a modern audience, revealing the hidden and fascinating meanings buried deep in Greek mythology and its resonance for us today. These films look beneath the surface of each myth to unveil some surprisingly modern themes: Odysseus is torn between glory at work and happiness at home, while Jason's journey symbolises the battle of the sexes. Using state of the art CGI and dramatizations, we bring to life the epic journey of The Odyssey and Jason's explorations.
