This Week On TVNZ 6

WEEK 9: Saturday 27 February - Friday 5 March 2010

Drama - Roman Mysteries, Wednesday 3 March, 9pm and Thursday 4 March, 6pm: New to TVNZ 6, Roman Mysteries is an absorbing television drama that follows four young 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 youth 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 and 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. Roman Mysteries, based on the best-selling books by Caroline Lawrence, is the BBC's largest ever children's drama commission and no expense has been spared in bringing the Roman Empire of AD79 to life. The series is shot entirely on location, the first in Tunisia and Malta, and the second in Bulgaria and Malta. Tonight, while Lupus dives for lost treasure, the shipwreck conceals a nasty surprise. The lure of a quick fortune has attracted others and the repulsive Venalicius makes an unwelcome return. However, the shipwreck is reluctant to give up its treasures easily and has a surprise waiting in the depths - Lupus is no longer alone when he dives!
