Pompeii - The Last Day

Show Summary

Pompeii - The Last Day is a BBC-produced dramatic interpretation of the day leading up to the devastating eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD, starring Tim Pigott-Smith, Jonathan Firth, and Jim Carter and combining archaeological and historical evidence with state-of-the-art digital effects to recreate this deadly act of nature. The writers of this dramatic documentary used the evidence left by the eruption, including the plaster casts of people who were killed and preserved in the ash, to assemble a story of the final day before the explosion. This series has been applauded for its scientifically accurate and visually stunning portrayal of the eruption, faithfully capturing the sights and sounds of such a mammoth display of the Earth's forces. The documentary won the 2005 Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Sound Editing for Nonfiction Programming. Pompeii - The Last Day is a riveting portrayal of one of the most famous and destructive volcano eruptions in all of recorded history.
