    Broadcast title: A journey in Greece
    Duration: 58 min. 22 sec.
    Item notes: Gilliam on how Greece "is facing problems of reconstruction after ten years of invasion, occupation and civil war."
    Item notes: Radio Times: After almost ten years of Italian invasion, German occupation, and civil war, Greece is the most battered of the Western democracies. This account of a journey: to the mainland of Greece and to some of the islands in the summer of 1951 brings evidence ot remarkable recovery, aided first by Britain and latterly by the U.S.A. through the Marshall Plan. But the main impression left on the visitor to Greece today is one of invincible inner strength, grounded in the character of the Greek people.
