I thought it was too good to be true! As of 16th June, 2011 – the Hidden History of Rome documentary is no longer available. I’ve replaced it with the much shorter Pompeii graffiti & sex appeal video from the BBC history show ‘Gladiators: The Brutal Truth‘ – also presented by Terry Jones.
Ex-Monty Python Welshman Terry Jones is something of history buff and this short excerpt from the ‘Gladiators: The Brutal Truth’ documentary takes a look at the life of Rome’s legendary Gladiators. Being something of a history buff myself, I found it very interesting, so I thought others may too, which is why it is here.
There are some lovely shots of Pompeii, Italy’s mismanaged wonder of a ruin, too.
Happy viewing fellow history fans!

Pompeii graffiti & sex appeal – BBC History
Now all you have to do is to go see Pompeii and Rome! I’ve been to both, and found Pompeii especially fascinating.
