STEPHEN FRY on Parthenon Marbles Debate – Stephen Fry Συζήτηση για τα Μάρμαρα του Παρθενώνα (Greek Subtitles – Ελληνική Υπότιτλοι)
Stephen Fry steals show, and Greek hearts, in Parthenon marbles debate. A talk in London about whether the British Museum should return the sculptures was screened live to an audience in Athens
Britain hold on to dubiously acquired treasures that were removed without the consent of the Greek people to whom they culturally and historically belong? That’s what Lord Byron thought, and now Stephen Fry is taking up the cause. We should return the Marbles as a gesture of solidarity with Greece in its financial distress, says Fry, and as a mark of respect for the cradle of democracy and the birthplace of rational thought.
