Focusing on an impressive achievement by London's Almeida Theatre today. Over the course of one day in August, they had performers read Homer's Iliad in its entirety (18,255 lines of text -- it took 66 people to read it) to an "audience of more than 50,000 people across the world, watching online or in person at the Almeida and the British Museum." The event is available to watch online until 21 September 2016.
