About the Show

Combining immersive drama with the latest historical research and CGI, the amazing story of one of the world’s greatest military heroes, Hannibal Barca, is brought to life on an epic scale. Two centuries before the birth of Christ, Rome is the burgeoning superpower of the ancient world. With each conquest her empire grows. But one man is destined to challenge all that; a man bound by oath to avenge the wrongs inflicted on his home, Carthage in North Africa - the empire that ruled the Mediterranean before Rome stole its crown; a man whose pathological hatred of Rome knows no bounds.
