The documentary Greek Seadogs is currently in production, with the cast and crew already visiting half of the locations in the Hellenic Republic. So far, the intrepid travellers have visited Ahtnes, Paros, Naxos, Ikaria and Samos – to name but a few. And they still have so many locations to see, such as Monemvasia, Mykonos and Kalymnos.
Greek Australian adventurer Nikos Andronicos gives an eye-opening exploration back to his motherland of Greece, and in the documentary, delves deep into its maritime world and empire.
During the six-part series, Nikos will cross paths with all manner of vibrant characters whose lives are intertwined with the sea. From fishermen to ferry captains, supertanker masters, yachtsmen, pleasure craft skippers and coast guard officers, Nikos will find out what makes them tick and how, together, they’ve turned Greece into the world’s number one maritime nation. Laugh and cry with the characters Nikos meets – through the joys and woes of their everyday lives. Hold their hands as they work through today’s challenges in an industry that is so vital to the country’s livelihood and financial future. Greek Seadogs is a story of passion, skill and immense opportunity… showing that Greece is resilient and still embodies the magic it has always had.
Greek Seadogs has been created by a group of Australians passionate about Greece and its future. As such, the series focuses on a subject close to the hearts of the production team, and intrinsic to everyday Greek life: the country’s sea-born culture, and the pre-eminent skills of its mariners.
