Run, sail or hide? How to survive the destruction of Pompeii
It's a bustling day in Pompeii. After a quick visit to the market, Fabia spots her brothers, Lucius and Marcus, crossing the Forum. The siblings begin discussing Lucius' wedding — but a deafening boom interrupts them. They watch Vesuvius spew smoke, ash, and rock — and realize they've been living in the shadow of a volcano. Gary Devore follows the siblings as they attempt to survive the disaster. [Directed by Totem Creative, narrated by Jack Cutmore-Scott, music by Salil Bhayani].
