From its rise to its fall, witness the legendary might of the Roman Empire.

Just what did the Romans ever do for us? For over a thousand years the Roman Empire held the Western world in its grasp, imposing laws, ideas, a single language and a common currency. Philosophy, technology, art and culture – the ideas of the Romans continue to exert an influence over modern life all over the world. Now, in this revealing three-disc set, discover the details, stories and intrigue behind the rise and fall of this incredible Empire. See how the world became ever more connected, with the Romans’ gift for trade and road-building; witness the might of its armies, conquerors of three continents; and learn how civil war, corruption and chaos tore it apart.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Great happy harmony on 8 May 2011
There are 3 DVDs with 2 episodes on each DVD. The episodes trace the rise and fall of Rome and use some of the words of Roman writers of the time with good visuals as well as commentary. There are British experts with an American commentary and American experts, most of whom are good. Some of the info overlaps within episodes so there is not a straight narrative and the times are a bit hard to grasp but there is a lot of good information aided by the good visuals.It is really watchable and very informative.
A very good overview that encourages you to follow up aspects of interest.

Patronizing and boring, no relevant information to anyone over the age of 7. Buy it if your child likes Roman myth and history but not as a source of raw brilliant Discovery channel knowledge. Poor.
