Pompeii: The Last Day [DVD] [2003]

In the year 79 A.D., the ancient city of Pompeii was transformed from a thriving community to a wasteland in little more than a day when the massive volcano Mount Vesuvius erupted, raining billions of tons of lava, stone, and ash upon the nearby city. Pompeii: The Last Day is a docudrama which though state-of-the-art special effects recreates the destruction of Pompeii while depicting the human drama as the people of the city must either flee their homes or face certain death. Originally produced for broadcast by the BBC, Pompeii: The Last Day stars Jonathan Firth, Neji Nejah, Rachel Atkins and Jim Carter.
