Windfall Films has announced its one-off 50 minute doc for National Geographic Channel and WNET, Lost Ships of Rome.

The HD film explores the Ancient Roman ship graveyard near the Italian island of Ventotene, with divers discovering the ship’s ancient cargo and artifacts in order to tell the story of the ship’s past.

Ian Duncan, Windfall’s company director and EP, says in a statement, “Lost Ships of Rome is an intriguing and stimulating documentary that combines historical facts with human stories and spectacular CGI effects. The programme will not only take the audience on a journey of discovery but will bring to life the fascinating history of Ancient Rome.”

It is directed and produced by Robert Hartel and executive produced by Ian Duncan for Windfall Films. The documentary was commissioned by Geoff Daniels for NGC and Jared Lipworth for WNET New York Public Media.
