People of intellect and Art were and still are continuously documented on the show Monogramma. People who worship and serve the Nine Muses, under the "sun of Justice" as sung in the famous song with lyrics by Odysseas Elytis, who gave the name of the show to Giorgos Sgourakis. To prove that yes, culture is still being promoted in Greece and the imaginary line that connects us to our cultural heritage has never been cut.
In each episode, the autobiographer defines the context of the film that is being made about them. Then, with their cooperation, the structure and character of the whole presentation is determined. We first study all the existing biographical data, we follow the thorough documentation of the work of the person we are documenting, we refer to the publications and interviews concerning them and after many months of preparation, we complete our television recording.
To date, about 400 persons have been documented and, in the conception of the creation of the series, we consider as very distinguishing the wide range of specialties of the autobiographers, covering almost all scientific, artistic and social areas.
