Synopsis: Alastair Sook takes us on a journey to prove that great and influential classical art was not just limited to the Hellenistic world but was adapted by the Romans to new and surprising heights as well as developing along its own lines - in architecture, painting, statues - and should be celebrated in its own right. Alastair takes along to view this world which will amaze and delight the senses - it shows how the great and good (and not so good) of the Roman world commissioned these fantastic pieces which went on to influence the art and culture of the world we inhabit today.
