Pompeii: Life and Death in a Roman Town (2011), BBC production

A film narrated by Mary Beard, Professor of Classics, Cambridge University

We know how the victims of Pompeii and Oplontis died, but this documentary sets out to answer another question—how did they live? Gleaning evidence from the archaeological discoveries at Villa B at Oplontis, Cambridge professor and Pompeii expert Mary Beard provides new insight into the lives of people who lived in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius.
