Travelling Around Greece June 30, 2006

Posted by grhomeboy in Greece.

“Travelling Around Greece” is a new tourist and travel show that is broadcast live via the Internet every day 14:00 – 15:00 (Greek local time) and via ERT SAT every evening 19:00 – 20:00.

The show aims at bringing Greeks and foreigners closer to the beautiful corners of Greece, by presenting the multi-faceted tourist activities available in every getaway.

Four teams of reporters travel constantly all over Greece, recording and promoting the unique character of some faraway locations of the country with their cameras.

The show uses all the latest technology, broadcasting live pictures from around 40 locations in Greece (ski resorts, ports, towns) via webcams. In the meantime, with the use of videophones, it performs live links with remote areas, while this is the first time that telematic systems for real time recording of map routes will be implemented.

The aim of the reporting crew is to connect Greek tourism to the rich cultural heritage and tradition of every area, with special focus on alternative forms of tourism.

Furthermore, during the show, there is a constant flow of information regarding the weather in 160 Greek cities and towns – in collaboration with the Athens Observatory, – departures and arrivals of ships and planes, as well as traffic updates from national and regional roads.

The show also hosts well-known Greeks, who talk about their birthplaces, as well as their favourite getaways in Greece.

Finally, the website offers interactive communication via a forum for exchanging travel information, experiences and tips.
