The Fatal Conflict: Judea and Rome
Wednesdays at 8:30pm AEDT from February 19
The two-part series, The Fatal Conflict — Judea and Rome explores the tumultuous life of King Herod, and unpacks the glorious rise and tragic fall of Judea under the reign of the Roman Empire. These two events, although 70 years apart, are forever connected by one man who was charged with chronicling the events leading to Judea’s fall — the controversial historian Flavius Josephus. The Fatal Conflict — Judea and Rome examines history from a fresh perspective, using the words and deeds of this infamous Jewish acolyte and General, historian and alleged traitor. Utilising a mixed media approach, it breathes life into the story of Jerusalem’s rise and fall. Expert interviews, dramatic recreations, animation and stunning CGI weave a visual tapestry as rich as the story itself.
