Synopsis

Examines the geological evidence that suggests that Mt. Vesuvius, a volcano dormant since 1944, is on the move again. The program looks at scientific measurements of the volcano, at the threat posed by an eruption to the more than two million people who live under its shadow and at the critical day in 79 AD when the city of Pompeii died.
