A dramatized recreation of the destruction of Pompeii and Herculaneum when Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD.
The film takes place from August 24 to August 25, 79 AD.
Alisdair Simpson - Narrator:
Vesuvius has never again erupted with the same volcanic force as on that hot summer day in A.D. 79. According to the experts, Plinian eruptions of this scale only happen every 2000 years. The next one is due.
As the second-last pyroclastic wave stops just outside the city, the carbon dioxide it sends into the city should have affected all the lamps, dimming if not extinguishing the flames. The flames are untouched although the people are choking.
