Summary SLEEPING GIANTMount Vesuvius erupted two thousand years ago, however the destructive power of Vesuvius is not consigned to the history books. Today it threatens the city of Naples, which is home to three million Italians. They know that when Vesuvius next explodes, there will be very little warning. IN THEIR FOOTSTEPS Tim Jarvis is one of the world's most fearless adventurers who recreates great exploits of the past. He strides out bravely in the footsteps of Scott, Mawson and, now, Ernest Shackleton. SAVING PETRA Carved into a mountainside, Petra has survived for two and a half thousand years. Its popularity soared off the back of the Indiana Jones movies but now the "Rose City" has become too popular for its own good and archaeologists fear it will be lost forever.
