On Saturday 5th of May, the community of Ithaki gathered in Vathy Square with food, dance and music to give a performance of a lifetime for the television program, Sunday in the Village. Everyone was on their best behavior as the tv crew, presenter and director determined the look of Ithaki for National TV. Ithaca was more than a little excited. A little over 2 hours of shooting in the village Square with more footage from around the island through the past week, will air (except for the boring bits which will no doubt end up on the edit room floor) an hour episode Sunday 13th May. The program will have everyone on Ithaki on the edge of their seats to see themselves and their island represented on tele. The morning had a great atmosphere. Some were relaxed, some were stressed, others just sat back to watch it all go on, and here's how it looked through a static lens.
Women from around the villages of Ithaki, prepared traditional Ithacan food to be sampled by the presenter who will make comments for all the public of tv land to hear, so it was important to have it right.

The wind blew and the skies threatened rain, but the warm temperature kept people in the Square to see what being on tele was all about.
Tables were set up for the Council members and other political groups. The Papas from around the island were also there to represent the church. There were hairdos and fancy shoes and the biggest cook-up ever seen by Ithaca.
The ET3 crew were polite and laid back. They seemed to enjoy the day as much as the locals and Presenter Marni Hatziemanuil got right into the thick of it with what seemed a genuine interest in the island and its culture.
