1) Secrets of the Gladiators
A stadium for 50,000. An architectural marvel 2000 years old. Here, stars were made. Lives were ended. Rome’s glory was revealed but so was its ugly heart. From the archaeological evidence, and an eyewitness account we reconstruct when the Colosseum first opened its doors through beast fights, executions, and a legendary duel. It was glorious, brutal, ingenious, spectacular, terrifying. The Colosseum was Rome.
