businessmen have come to carry out a feasibility study for a package tour at
the ancient home of the Greek gods - all of whom are terrified at the prospect.
It happens that Hermes has decided it is time for some of his fellow gods to
take a more active part in sorting out the human race but there is little
harmony of ideas amongst them and Zeus has to exercise his authority.
Unfortunately his policy of "If you can't beat them, let them join you" does
not work out as he had planned!
A lively "sit-com" of an unusual kind with clearly identified caricatured types provides gentle satirical humour which should have wide appeal.
