In 1993 I provided assistance to the crew in Athens of Trans World International of London, England for its new weekly international football (soccer) program with news and features from all around the world with producer for Futbol Mundial Jamie Baker and his assistants Nicholas Etherton (Producer/Director) and Michelle Amato.
In Greece to do the filming were Baker, Etherton and cameraman James Saligari.
We attended the Greece vs. Russia World Cup qualifying match at the Athens Olympic Stadium on November 17, 1993 as well as the Panionios vs. Olympiakos basketball game on November 20.
On November 16 we attended a practice session of the Greek national team at the Athens Olympic Stadium, a reception for the Greek and Russian national soccer teams, an interview with Olympics gold medal winner Voula Patoulidou at the athletic village near the Athens Olympic Stadium and a Panathinaikos basketball practice session in Glyfada for interviews with top players including Nick Galis.
