From the BBC Press Office:
BBC One is to tell the dramatic story of the greatest natural disaster to shake the ancient world, a disaster that triggered the downfall of a civilisation and spawned a legend.
Around 1620 BC a gigantic volcano in the Aegean Sea stirred from its 19,000-year slumber.
The eruption tore the island of Thera apart, producing massive tsunamis that flooded the nearby island of Crete, the centre of Europe's first great civilisation -- the Minoans.
This apocalyptic event, many experts now believe, provided the inspiration for the legend of Atlantis.
Based on the work of leading scientists, archaeologists and historians, this drama immerses viewers in the exotic world of the Minoans.
Starring Reece Ritchie (The Lovely Bones; Prince Of Persia ) and Stephanie Leonida (Yes; MirrorMask), Atlantis is the first British TV drama to use the virtual backlot production technique of the movie 300.
Incorporating the latest CGI technology, the film brings viewers face to face with one of history's greatest disasters -- from the precursory earthquakes through the eruption sequence to the pyroclastic flows and tsunamis.
The programme is a co-production with Discovery, BBC Worldwide, Pro Sieben (Germany) and France Deux (France).
In a companion documentary on BBC Two, historian Bettany Hughes traces the origins of the Atlantis myth and presents compelling evidence that the Thera eruption inspired Plato's account of Atlantis.
Executive producer Ailsa Orr said: "Atlantis will immerse the viewer in a world they've never seen before, in a brand new, exciting way.
"The world of the Minoans and the disaster that wiped them out has been created using visual effects that have, to date, only ever been used in Hollywood movies.
"It offers our audiences a unique viewing experience -- the closest they'll ever get to one of the greatest natural disasters of all time."
Notes to Editors
Atlantis is a BBC Northern Ireland Production.
Virtual backlot production technique of 300 means that the entire production is shot in a studio against green screen, mixing physical with virtual (CG) set builds. The technique provides unique creative control over the visual style of the film.
Michael Mosley (executive producer) executive produced many of the BBC's high-end factual dramas, such as Pompeii -- The Last Day, Supervolcano, Superstorm and Krakatoa: The Last Days.
Ailsa Orr (executive producer) is BBC Northern Ireland's Head of Programmes and was the Producer behind Pompeii -- The Last Day, Supervolcano, Hannibal and Superstorm.
Detlef Siebert (series producer) has a long track record in historical programmes. Most recently, he was the drama director on Auschwitz -- The Nazis And the Final Solution, wrote and directed the drama-documenta ry The Somme -- From Defeat To Victory, and series produced Nuremberg -- Nazis On Trial.
Tony Mitchell (director) pioneered historical documentary dramas with Neanderthal and Ancient Egyptians and is one of the world's top directors of CG-heavy drama, including Supervolcano, Primeval and Flood.
Add to EJ Playlist ORIGIN OF SCIENTOLOGY
The first official Church of Scientology was founded in 1953 by science fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard, in the city of Camden, New Jersey. Hubbard was assisted by his wife and several disciples. The organization promotes a set of beliefs about mind, body, and spirit that are referred to collectively as Scientology. This belief system includes substantial material from the self-help regimen prescribed in Hubbard's commercially successful book Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health, published in 1950.
WHO WAS L. RON HUBBARD?
Born in Nebraska, L. Ron Hubbard studied civil engineering at George Washington University for one year before being discharged for poor academic performance. During his service as a naval officer during World War II he was three times removed from leadership positions and was the subject of a disciplinary hearing, but was discharged honorably in 1950.
Until the publication of Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health, Hubbard was primarily known as a science fiction writer. He spent most of his adult life promoting Dianetics and Scientology. He returned only briefly to writing science fiction during the latter years of his life. L. Ron Hubbard died in 1986.
Scientology is based on a self-help regimen described in Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health, by L. Ron Hubbard. Dianetics is known within the scientology organization as "Book 1″; however, all of Hubbard's written and spoken words are considered to be Scientology "scriptures." The organization directs each member to read and listen to these books and lectures at great personal expense.
At the core of this belief system is the doctrine that each individual is a "thetan" or soul. Thetans are said to be essentially immortal, living through past lives and long past the deaths of their current bodies. To unlock one's true power and ability as an immortal thetan, one must engage in very costly "auditing" or spiritual counseling. According to Scientology, auditing removes any and all negative influences and psychic barriers.
Only after extensive auditing are Scientologists presented with an esoteric origin myth involving an alien overlord and intergalactic genocide. The problems of ordinary life, according to this story, are caused by lost souls who inhabit and influence individuals and can be removed only through more highly priced auditing. Thus Scientologists are exhorted to continue up "the bridge to total freedom."
The Church of Scientology claims to be a religion and enjoys a questionable charitable tax exemption in the United States. However, former Scientologists and anti-Scientolog y activists have exposed many serious misdeeds by this organization and its leadership:
Free speech violations
Human rights violations including suspicious deaths, torture, coerced abortions, the deliberate separation of families, and human trafficking
Illegal actions such as harassment, slander, libel, extortion, and vexatious lawsuits--condo ned and encouraged when directed toward those who challenge or defy Scientology practices
Fraudulent activities including questionable tax exemptions and charitable status in various countries including the U.S., unsafe drug rehabilitation practices, irregular business practices, and bogus educational and charitable organizations designed to infiltrate schools and recruit young people
