Summary
These stories have been re-told for modern audiences. They look beneath the surface of each myth to unveil some surprisingly modern themes. In episode 1, Jason's journey symbolises the battle of the sexes. His journey reflects the many explorations of the Black Sea undertaken by the ancient Greeks, but the essence of the story is a voyage of self-discovery. Along the way, Jason learns about responsibility, danger, sex, love and women. In episode 2, Odysseus is torn between glory at work and happiness at home. The Odyssey poses a question that resonates to this day: what is the meaning of life? After 10 years' fighting in the Trojan War, Odysseus, King of Ithaca, sets sail for home. His journey, however, is full of temptation. Odysseus has to decide what is most important to him: home and family, or immortality
