3) Doomsday Pompeii
This is the story of a disaster like no other. When Mount Vesuvius erupted, it rained 8 million tons of debris onto Pompeii. It sealed the fate of more than a thousand people. But it also sealed the city from the world: preserved it, protected it. Like nowhere else on earth, the rediscovered Pompeii gives us access to the ancient world. And now, with new findings and new insights, we can tell the story of the ordinary people caught up in this disaster. These are the forgotten men and women who lived when Rome ruled…and were buried when the volcano blew.
