Pompeii: The Doomed City

1999 Rated NR 50m

Located at the base of Mount Vesuvius, the city of Pompeii was completely wiped out when the volcano violently erupted in A.D. 79. More than 2,000 citizens died, buried beneath a mountain of volcanic ash. In 1748, Pompeii was rediscovered -- the city and its people frozen in time by the catastrophic event. This fascinating program explores the doomed city through film footage, reconstructions and expert commentary.
