FORUM ROMANUM

Forum Romanum is a Latin news program published by the National Latin Exam.  There are 24 episodes covering historic Roman events from 211 B.C. to 180 A.D.

From the American Classical League website:
Presents news from the ancient world as it happens. Each show takes place on a particular date in Roman history and opens with the Quaestio Hodierna, designed to cue the audience to that show's theme. Following this question comes the Quid Novi segment announcing the day's top story. The next segment features a related topic, either an editorial or an interview with a persona notanda. After the news comes the weather (Tempestas Hodierna). This segment is actually meant to be a geography lesson, emphasizing locations around the Mediterranean relevant to the show's top story. The answer to the Quaestio Hodierna is then given, followed by the Dictum Hodiernum (also based on the feature story). The show closes with a quick review of the top story and a brief valediction by the host of Forum Romanum. Forum Romanum is presented entirely in Latin, though some English subtitles and vocabulary words appear on screen to establish context and aid comprehension. The purpose of the show is to present Latin as a language by allowing the audience to hear spoken Latin, featured within a realistic and relevant context.  This DVD contains all 24 programs and scripts are included as a separate CD. Sponsored by the ACL/ NJCL National Latin Exam.
