|Godolphin And Latymer School Ancient World Breakfast Club|
|Celebrate their tenth anniversary
For the 10th anniversary celebrations we were privileged to welcome back the distinguished historian and broadcaster Bettany Hughes to speak on the subject of ‘The perils of putting Classics on TV'. Fresh from producing the excellent series Genius of the Ancient World for BBC Four, Bettany had many humorous anecdotes to share about the challenges and rewards which come with seeking to make Classics accessible to a wider audience. Members of the club needed no persuading of the value of that task: many had provided memorabilia for the occasion which attested to the range of activities – from theatre trips and holidays to further study – which had been inspired by their shared love of Classics and the forum which the Ancient World Breakfast Club had provided for its expression. It was evident throughout the evening that the club had been the starting-point for numerous life-long friendships, and as the celebrations drew to a close the talk among many was of how to celebrate the next big milestone.
