Passion Distribution is delighted to announce further sales of documentary series Pompeii's Final Hours: New Evidence (3 x 60’) to Australia, New Zealand, Italy, CEE and Africa. This follows the recent announcement that the series has been licensed in Germany to RTL.
Pompeii's Final Hours: New Evidence (aka Last Days Of Pompeii) has been acquired by Foxtel (Australia), Choice TV (New Zealand), Sky Italia (Italy) and by Viasat (CEE and Africa). The series, produced by Voltage TV, aired on Channel 5 in the UK at the end of May. The first episode rated as the channel’s second best performing history documentary for the last 5 years and attracted 1.9m consolidated ratings.
Pompeii's Final Hours: New Evidence is a three part documentary series which presents a countdown through the final days of life in Pompeii and how new archaeological digs and technologies are revealing previously unknown secrets about the people hidden beneath the ash. Historian Dr Bettany Hughes (Genius of the Modern World, Britain’s Secret History), Archaeologist Raksha Dave (Time Team) and John Sergeant (Britain’s Secret Treasures) explore what life was like in the final hours of the doomed city of Pompeii – counting down day-by-day to the eruption itself. Spanning the entire ruined city and the surrounding areas, they follow new digs, stepping into the best preserved Roman sites, following the human remains as they are analysed, and visiting the volcano itself.
