Ouzo Talk - The Parthenon Marbles Ouzo Talk

    • Society & Culture

There's no more contentious issue in modern Greek history than that of the Parthenon Marbles. Stripped from the Parthenon atop Athens’ Acropolis under dubious circumstances by Lord Elgin while Greece was under occupation, the Marbles were irreversibly damaged by Elgin's team, before being shipped to the UK where they were eventually sold to The British Museum – the place where they now reside. Greeks, non-Greeks, and Philhellenes the world-over want them to be returned to Athens where they can be reunited with the rest of the works from the monument in the Acropolis Museum. 

Tom and Nick are joined by Founder and Chair of the International Committee – Australia – for the Restitution of the Parthenon Marbles Inc, Emmanuel John Comino AM, and committee member, lawyer and cultural heritage expert, Theodora Gianniotis to discuss the campaign to bring the Marbles home.
