Since Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD, burying the city of Pompeii, it has been frozen in time. But now, more secrets behind the ancient Roman city are being revealed with the help of new technologies in Science Channel’s Lost World Of Pompeii. Pompeii is a delicately conserved attraction that is under constant threat from the wears and tear of extensive tourism, the specter of landslides and the possibility of another devastating eruption from Mount Vesuvius. This one-hour special goes behind-the-scenes of Pompeii with a collection of scientists as they use new science to try to finish piecing together the relics of Pompeii’s past before time runs out. Lost World Of Pompeii merges technology with history to reveal a clearer picture of what exactly happened on that day, thousands of years ago when the volcano erupted. The special features a group of experts from around the world who are leading teams of archaeologists, volcanologists, architects and scientists to search for new evidence on what life was like before the day of Vesuvius’s deadly eruption. To bring the buried city back to life, all aspects of society are researched. A team of archaeologists and anthropologists use X-ray technology on ancient body casts to gather information on the life that was lived by the persons inside. Not only do these scans reveal information about the subject’s age and their occupation, but they can also be used to digitally reconstruct the faces of those lost – with details accurate enough to determine their ethnic lineage. To revive their wisdom, a group led by Dr. Emmanuel Brun uses a synchrotron – an extremely powerful source of X-rays— to try to see inside a set of ancient scrolls that were scorched shut in the disaster. And to sculpt the structures that kept the civilization thriving, architects aim to create the first-ever complete 3D model of the city.

On 17 October 79 AD, the city of Pompeii was buried under lava after the sudden eruption of Mount Vesuvius. Today, the mythical site has yet to reveal all its secrets. A new excavation campaign is being conducted, the most significant in 70 years and one of the major archaeological investigations of the twenty-first century. The film unveils the sumptuous frescoes and mosaics that adorned the excavated villas and uses historical reconstructions in natural settings to show, hour by hour, how the city and its inhabitants were buried under a mantle of ash.

Reilly, Ace of Spies is a 1983 British television programme dramatizing the life of Sidney Reilly, a Russian-born adventurer who became one of the greatest spies ever to work for the British. Among his exploits, in the early 20th century, were the infiltration of the German General Staff in 1917 and a near-overthrow of the Bolsheviks in 1918. His reputation with women was as legendary as his genius for espionage.
The 12-part series was written by Troy Kennedy Martin, and based on the 1967 book Ace of Spies by Robin Bruce Lockhart, whose father R. H. Bruce Lockhart was one of Reilly's fellow spies.
Sam Neill stars as the eponymous character. The theme music is the romance movement from Dmitri Shostakovich's The Gadfly Suite, though Shostakovich is not actually credited (Harry Rabinowitz is credited with the music).
