This is one of the best historical mini series ever. The characters are wonderful as the plot story and the presenting of the events in pompeii during the reign of titus (79-81 AD) son of the emperor vespasian.
An enjoyable series which is a must have for your "roman empire" dvd collection.

This dvd (2 discs)is good value for money -cheaper than the 3 disc German version and better quality. The 3 disc version does not have any additional scenes or information. The third disc is just like a mini summary of the two disc version.
There is a good story line to this movie -it is interesting without being graffic, overall it is good entertainment value. I would highly recommend it if you enjoy historical movies.

I saw this mini-series when it was on television in the early 80's. I loved it but had not been able to find it anywhere, until now. The quality of the product is fine. It might not be HD quality, but remember, it was made for television almost 30 years ago. Very hppy with my purchase.

I loved this miniseries when it first came out and couldn't wait to watch it again on DVD. The DVDs play fine on my DVD player - the one-star review originally made me hesitate from purchasing. A gorgeous production with a strong cast, including brief but crucial appearances by Sir Laurence Oliver, it is as good as I remembered. Thumbs-up for anyone who enjoys historical dramas about the Roman Empire.

Mr. Duncan Regehr ... actor -- artist -- a man born to create! In THE LAST DAYS OF POMPEII, he took us on an adventure of Man vs. Man in the arena killing fields of Gladiators.

He also was excellent in the title role of the cult-thriller THE BANKER. Screenplay by Dana Augustine.

BRAVO Duncan Regehr -- check out his art too!

I was really pleased that this DVD had extra scenes that was not shown on TV, it made a little more sense of other scenes. I was advised that my purchases would arrive sometime from mid January to mid February, instead it arrived within 2-3 weeks of purchase.

This was one of the BEST Mini Series on TV.... A wonderful recreation of the last days of one of the more fascinating cultures and cities on earth. The cast was amazing and the story was awesome... Sad, but true. I have literally waited years for this to come out on dvd... I am so happy it finally did.
The casting was so great. To see all these amazing actors and actresses together creating a seamless story is wonderful..
