Greece - Missing Persons
As the TV year begins here in Greece, I thought this would be a good time to tell you about one show which is high on my list of "must watch". The show is called "Light at the end of the tunnel" or in Greek "Φως στο Τούνελ". The host is Mrs Angeliki Nikolouli, and every week Mrs Nikolouli and her team take on a new assignment, looking for people who have mysteriously disappeared.
The show has high ratings, and as calls come in from all over the country and all over the world, we can see all sorts of stories unfolding, as seemingly innocent situations turn into, in many cases, crime investigations.
Mrs Nikolouli's attempts at uncovering these disappearances have aided many people, and although some of the results are not what we would expect, uncovering the truth is something that she has mastered.
Apart from recent disappearance, the show also covers stories going as far back as the early to mid 1900's when many Greek children were given up for adoption and taken to other countries. We have seen many families reunited and many people from countries such as America and Australia, discovering their Greek Roots.
I would personally like to congratulate Mrs Nikolouli's attempts, and also her bravery in tackling very difficult situations, and in some cases becoming a part of investigations that were never apparent until her team became interested in them.
Take a look at the site, which is also in English. Maybe you could help a family find someone they have lost at http://www.anikolouli.gr/indexuk.asp?Cat_id=61
