Alexander is The Greatest Greek of All Time

(GREEK NEWS AGENDA)   In a lengthy debate broadcast live on Skai Television on May 18, the series ended with the voting of Alexander the Great as the Greatest Greek of all time.  After mass public participation – 700,000 votes were counted – many intellectuals and political figures were also involved, something that was emphasised in the final debate.  During the live show, 250 guests were present as “supporters” of the 10 finalists who were depicted in 10 Skai documentaries.  This project was based on the BBC’s own “Great Britons” series.  Kathimerini daily: The Greatest Greek of all time & Search is on for Greatest Greeks, past or present; Foundation of the Hellenic World: Hellenic History; Greek News Agenda: Voting for Greatest Greeks
