In october 1968 a filmteam managed to shoot the above video, using a hidden camera. This period, the famous Greek composer Mikis Theodorakis and his family (daughter Margarita and son Yorgos) lived in a small village Zatouna in Peloponnissos. The dictatorship kept him there under house arrest.

Some of his most impressive music was written in Zatouna; "the Arkadian cycles." In this footage you can hear Theodorakis read and sing the song Pelago (sea) which he was composed only some days after the coup of 1967.
