The Inside Story

Life as a Roman is a collaboration between Butser Ancient Farm and the BBC as part of the landmark Civilisations series which tells the story of art from the dawn of human history to the present day, for the first time on a global scale.

In addition to the television programme there is a digital strand of content led by BBC Research & Development and BBC Arts and this is a result of this Culture UK initiative.

Culture UK, BBC R&D and BBC Arts offered the museum sector, galleries and libraries an opportunity to be involved in the programme. Through offering them exclusive access to a suite of digital tools (two BBC-made and two licensed from third party suppliers), more than 700 BBC Archive materials, and a wealth of R&D expertise. Butser Ancient Farm submitted the idea to use 360 video to explore the ancient Roman villa and the BBC helped them realise their idea.
