Ar­chae­ol­o­gists use sub­mersible ro­bots and com­puter sim­u­la­tions to in­ves­ti­gate the sub­merged city of Pavlopetri, which lies off the south­ern coast of the Greek main­land. Orig­i­nally re­dis­cov­ered in 1967, it is be­lieved to be the old­est un­der­wa­ter city in the world. Philip Glenis­ter nar­rates this doc­u­men­tary fol­low­ing Jon Hen­der­son of the Uni­ver­sity of Not­ting­ham as he leads a team of ex­perts hop­ing to dis­cover what life was like for the cit­i­zens of Pavlopetri 3,500 years ago.
