Venus Uncovered DocumentaryOn February 15, 2019 by Moonlit Knight
A quick post on a very interesting programme I watched last night
on BBC4 called “Venus Uncovered: Ancient Goddess Of Love” .
Presented by Bettany Hughes it investigated the goddess Venus from her roots in Mesopotamia via Greece and Rome to her relevance today.
Here is a link to an interview she made with History Extra at the time it was first aired in November 2017 that covers the salient points – Bettany Hughes on the symbol of Venus
And now for some irreverence, my triple goddess of history presenters:
Maiden – Lucy Worsley
Mother – Bettany Hughes
Crone – Mary Beard
