Top 100 DVD Reviewer

A superb BBC series telling the story of Rome's first four emperors. Don't be put off by thinking this is just another dry old costume drama because it isn't.

Fantastic performances by an exceptional cast bring to life the shenanigans of Ancient Rome in this award winning series. Just think of it as Eastenders with togas...and liberally sprinkled with black humour (particularly John Hurt as Caligula and Derek Jacobi as Claudius).

If you like ancient history, or even if you just prefer a rollicking good story well told, you'll love this.

A fantastic rich and detailed BBC produced TV series dating from the 1970s following the history of the Roman Empire from the death of Marcellus 23 BC to Claudius own death in 54 AD. As Claudius narrates his life story we are witnesses to the desperate Augustus attempts to find an heir foiled by his wife power hungry Livia who wants her own son Tiberius to become emperor. Dark conspiracy follows. Its slow compared to the way it would be shot today but it stands as a true classic and includes a glorious cast eating up each and every frame. Totally recommended.
