This absorbing children s television drama follows four friends Flavia, Nubia, Jonathan and Lupus as they struggle to live through one of history s most turbulent times. With many comparisons to the lives of youngsters today, they deal with issues of prejudice, violence and the environment wrapped up in riveting stories of mystery and suspense. For differing reasons, each of the lead children is seen by Roman society as a misfit, an outsider, which helps strengthen the bond between them. What lies at the heart of each episode, whether they are dealing with erupting volcanoes, assassins or plague, is the strength of their friendship. Based on the million-selling books by Caroline Lawrence, this lavish production stars Simon Callow (Four Weddings And A Funeral, Shakespeare In Love, A Room With A View) as Pliny.
