A well-planned town with all modern conveniences, it is threatened by conflict between conquerors and conquered. Macaulay also visits Pompeii, Herculaneum, Ostia, Nimes, Orange, and Rome, to view actual Roman architecture and engineering greatness.

Many years later I have now watched this special on DVD and I enjoy it all the more! Then hand drawn animation was valued for it`s educational strenghs! Last night I watched "Walt Disney , an american experience" and I became excited all over again for hand drawn animation! The cgi is really monotonous! The 1990's hand drawn animated specials are superior! Hand drawn animation is combined with computer coloring and pencil drawings with movement for a starting effect! Very effective!
