Television broadcast created by Hal Linker with his wife, Halla, and son, David. Film footage was shot in Crete, Greece. The episode begins in Athens where the Linkers board a cruise ship travelling through the Greek Islands. Their first stop is Heraklion, Crete. The Linkers drive a few miles out of town to the ruins of the palace of Knossos. Next, they photograph the vineyards near Mount Ida, followed by footage of grain threshing in the countryside of Crete. The Linkers then go to the island of Spetses. The episode ends with "twist" dancing from Crete and some folk dancing.
