Voice of Greece, ERT’s global radio, has included the “Greeks around the world” series in its program since 2022. These are shows curated by Greeks abroad, in the country where they live, introducing us to our fellow Greeks and their local activities.

The beginning was with Greece in Denmark, followed by Greece in Luxembourg and Greece in Argentina and now Greece in the United Kingdom has joined the series. The show is presented by young journalist and Greek-British national Eliana Nunes.

It is noted that in recent years there has been a large wave of immigration from Greece to the UK, resulting in London competing with Melbourne in the title of the 3rd largest Greek-speaking city in the world.

Tune in to “Greece in the United Kingdom”on Voice of Greece every last Sunday of the month, at 10:00 am Athens time.
