The classic story of the Iliad told afresh by the combined genius of comedy legends Tony Robinson and Richard Curtis
The moment he met her, Odysseus knew that Helen was trouble! Now she’s been kidnapped and he’s determined to get her back.
Swords are sharpened, ships set sail and sights are set on Troy. Years of fighting lie ahead – bloody battles and gruesome deaths.
But Odysseus has a secret plan, and it comes in the shape of a rather large wooden horse…
Odysseus: The Greatest Hero of Them All is the first in an hysterical three-part retelling of the most famous Greek myths, also including the epic tales of Odysseus II: The Journey through Hell and Theseus: The King Who Killed the Minotaur.
