I was curious about what format the mini series 'The Battle for Rome' was shot in.

In the first episode 'Tiberius Gracchus', I was thinking S16.
In the next episode 'Caesar', there's a scene with Caesar at the Rubicon looked like very bad video.

Am also wondering about the locations. "Rome" itself is probably in North Africa. But Gaul? Pharsalus?

The network I'm using has a problem with the discovery channel site. When I attempt to access 'The battle for Rome' on the site, Internet Explorer shuts down. exceedingly tedious.
& IMDB only has the title on its site.

Webdom. what a country!

Hi,
I caught some of that series too, I only saw the part about Nero, I was curious about the formats too, it seemed to be a wierd mixture, some looked like oldschool Digibeta UK style shooting (like eastenders or something) but some was almost definately on film (S16 most probably) some of the film parts were also very flat with lots of DOF so it was quite hard to tell. But my guess would be a mixture of S16 and DigiBeta.
Cheers.
