The BBC Special Project, a standalone film highlighting the changes made to the Acropolis to make the cultural monument accessible to people with disabilities, will hit TV screens on Sunday 8 May.
A program called “Acropolis Now” will be broadcast on Sunday afternoon. The presenter – one of the most famous British media journalists, chained to a wheelchair (which does not prevent him from advancing in the professional field) – decided to tell the world how you can live a full life, despite your disability.
The BBC program will present all the changes and improvements that have been made in recent times, despite opponents “voting” for the “inadmissibility of technical interventions on the Acropolis (for the alleged alteration of the main archaeological site and monument of the country).
Recall that for about a year a special lift was installed on the Acropolis, created according to international standards and designed for people with disabilities (wheelchair users).
Thus, the technical work carried out and how access to the Acropolis for the disabled has improved will be broadcast by the leading British television network. “Ade Adepitan is in Athens to visit the Acropolis, the most famous archaeological site in Greece,” the program announced.
