PBS Show About Myths

A few weeks ago I found a program on PBS called "In Search of Myths and Heroes". That particular episode attempted to the trace the origins of the Arthurian legends. This week's episode dealt with Jason and the Golden Fleece.

I don't know if this is a regular program or simply a few hour-long episodes, but they are really terrific. The host exudes a genuine enthusiasm for the subject matter and the lady reading excerpts from the stories makes the words live and breathe.

It's refreshing to see myths and legends being tackled with both awe and skepticism. I would highly recommend the show to anyone interested in the subject of Mythology.

Here in New York City, the program airs on WLIW (PBS).
