Rome: The World's First Superpower - S1 Ep3 - Death Of A Hero
Death Of A Hero - During the mid-second century BC, Rome was enjoying the spoils of war, with slaves, treasure and art pouring into the republic. However, not everyone was reaping the benefit and as the gap widened between the poor and the privileged, resentment was mounting. Larry traces the journey of Tiberius Gracchus, a man from Romeʼs elite ruling classes who eventually came to champion the cause of the common citizen farmer. Along the way, Larry literally dives into the world of the rich by snorkelling through the submerged ruins at Baiae. On the seabed he sees for himself how farmed oysters led to the development of the hypocaust, Romeʼs famous central heating system. (Part 3 of 4) (From the UK) (Documentary) PG CC
