Hans,
I'll try to find this documentary...it will be interesting to see!
We haven't yet had the time to go to Baia...maybe in the next week we'll go there (I can't wait! ).
Regarding the links that you posted, a little note: in 1925 the archaeologist Amedeo Maiuri found the Crypta Romana that goes into the hill of Cuma and he believed it was the Sybil's Grotto. But it wasn't so and he continued his research. In 1932 he discovered another gallery that has a trapezoidal section and he thought it was the famous oracle. In reality this gallery, datable from around the IV-V century b.C., had a military function. You can see it in the Temple's photos...it's a wonderful building! It has a particular fascination...
Instead these are our photos...

Selene,
Thanks for the nice pictures. I have found an interesting site from which you can download a sample of the documentary "Descent into Hell". The link is www.rogal.org/Hell.wmv
The site is www.rogal.org/CRCredits.html
In the landing page the following text is written about the documentary; '"Descent into Hell" Mentorn Productions for National Geographic and Ch.4. Based upon his book Netherworld, writer Robert Temple leads us on an intriguing search for the gateway to Hades as described in ancient Greek literature. Directed by Alastair Reid.'.

Hans,
thank you very much for the sample of the documentary. It seems really well-made and very interesting...The tunnel in the video is similar to ours under Naples ( www.napoliunderground.org/it/video.html?...directlink&id=84 ).
We are trying to find "the Oracle of the Dead" too, as I has already said...
Now we are exploring the mount Barbaro and the latest stage will be Baia...so we can see with our own eyes Paget's discovery...still a little more patience...
When I have some free time, I'll translate in English the research results...
In the meantime you can see the video: www.napoliunderground.org/it/component/s...task=videodirectlink
This is the first part of the research, but it's still in Italian...

Selene,
Very nice pictures. Especially the second video with nice views on I guess the bay of Baia? You should not have claustrophobia to go into the Geni dal passato. Maybe the complex of Baia is easier to be investigated! You have a great hobby!
