The Taras Report on The Last Days of Pompeii by ALAN LLOYD , abridged in nine parts by DONALD BANCROFT Read by Richard Pasco
1: How I Came to Pompeii
In AD 79 Vesuvius erupted and buried the city of Pompeii in grey ash. By doing so it preserved forever the treasures of this rich and corrupting city. Through the invention of the character of Taras, a chronicler from the East who arrives in Pompeii in time to witness one of the most terrifying catastrophes of ancient times, Alan Lloyd breathes life into the ghosts of Pompeii. He weaves fact with fiction and tells the story of a man trapped by forces he does not understand in a city that was one of the most magnificent in the Roman Empire!

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
