This journey begins at the Straits of Messina before heading north up the coast to the resort town of Tropea. Continuing north past a striking coastline and hill top villages we come to Paestum, one of the greatest Greek archaeological sites of the ancient world. Further north we take a dramatic dawn flight around the Amalfi coastline, the Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius, and then explore the ancient Roman town of Pompeii. On the north side of the bay, after a closer look at Vesuvius we pass the crowded city and port of Naples. Flying west along the coast is the beautiful Island of Ischia. This journey ends at sunset on the other side of the bay over the island of Capri and a look at a Roman Emperor's summer villa.

The Atlantic became a killing field as German submarines took on the might of the dominant British Navy during World War I. The stealth and silent killers were able to sink 5200 ships by war's end, and nearly brought Britain to its knees. But in their frenzy of attacks, the Germans sink the US passenger liner Lusitania, killing nearly 2000 on board. American outrage helped President Wilson get Congress to finally agree to enter the war. In the end, the Allied Atlantic blockade forces Germany to surrender, but the submarine was established as an effective military weapon.

In World War I, tanks were the first armoured fighting machine to be used on the battlefield. These "land ships", as they were first called, were championed by Head of the British Admiralty Winston Churchill. Adapted from an American tractor with caterpillar tracks, the machine was designed in secrecy to break through the heavily fortified trenches and offer protection for troops that were being mowed down by heavy artillery. Though a massive failure in their first combat in the Battle of the Somme- they broke down and got stuck in the mud-British government propaganda reversed the story and paved the way for thousands of tanks to be built and become a decisive weapon in the war.

The republic's rulers were so panicked by the protest that they offered unprecedented power to a single, ambitious individual - Crassus - who promised victory in what would prove a dark foreshadowing of Rome's slide into dictatorship.
