So I Wrote That Musical

Whether he's behind the microphone doing stand-up or as Aunty Merle in one of his musicals, Marc Lottering always has audiences roaring with laughter.

In 2023, his stand-up comedy show So I Wrote That Musical made its debut in Cape Town.

It was also seen in Johannesburg and Durban and then returned to Cape Town for another run, where it was recorded.

In the special, Marc reflects on the challenges of moving between the worlds of stand-up comedy and musical theatre.

He also weaves in his sharp satirical views on the madness of contemporary South African life.

Odysseus Returns

In 1991, Greek politician Makis Metaxas discovered a 3,000-year-old tomb on Kefalonia, unearthing an object resembling a possession of King Odysseus.

This is the story of how this tomb was found.

King Odysseus was the trojan-horse-building genius in Homer's epic poem The Iliad.

He was the legendary lost King of the Ithacans who wandered the Earth for two decades in The Odyssey.

Scholars have long wondered whether Homer's Odysseus is merely a fiction, or whether he was a flesh-and-blood man.

Episode 1

Archaeologists have searched Ithaca for the home of King Odysseus for centuries.

So, when politician Makis Metaxas discovered the king's tomb, experts were dumbfounded.

Episode 2

The story of Metaxas' discovery quickly spread around the world, but a storm of controversy surrounded the case.

After three decades of suppression, the story is now finally told.
