Bacchus Uncovered


In this film Professor Bettany Hughes goes on an international search for Bacchus, the ancient God of wine, revelry and excess. On the hunt to identify and define ‘ecstasy’, we travel the globe to discover his origins, his presence in the modern world and explore how ‘losing oneself’ played a vital role in the development of civilisation.
