In the 1780s France was the richest nation on Earth. It also boasted an exploding national debt and an increasingly restless middle class. On July 14, 1789, a ragtag mob of Parisians stormed the fortress of the Bastille to seize the King's arms and ammunition. This set loose a decade of revolutionary ideals and a murderous cycle of carnage - the French Revolution, that would shake the very foundations of monarchy, destroy the last vestiges of feudalism, plant the seeds for modern politics, diplomacy and nationalism - and plunge an entire continent into endless warfare for a generation to come.
Pompeii: one of the most famous volcanic eruptions in history. We know how its victims died, but this film sets out to answer another question - how did they live? Gleaning evidence from an extraordinary find, Cambridge professor and Pompeii expert Mary Beard provides new insight into the lives of the people who lived in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius before its cataclysmic eruption. Using the latest forensic techniques it is now possible to determine what those who perished in the disaster ate and drank, where they came from, what diseases they suffered, how rich they were and, perhaps even more astonishingly, the details of their sex lives. Mary takes us on journey from the cellar to a small ancient town which nevertheless boasted more than 50 fast food joints, dozens of rowdy bars, a 200-foot-long swimming pool and even its own brothel. The film opens the lid on this most famous of ancient towns to reveal Pompeii as it's never been seen before.
