I, Caesar (1997)
The Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire
These six charismatic men were rulers of the ancient world's largest empire, leaving a resilient legacy as the best-known of the emperors of Rome. Their careers exemplified the remarkable Roman achievements and the brutal, corrupt nature of the Roman system. From Julius Caesar and Caesar Augustus, whose reigns predated Christianity, this series traces six centuries of Roman rule through Nero, Hadrian, Constantine, and Justinian.
Their careers were made up of bloody battles and tactical bribery, stunning innovation and profound corruption, dazzling rhetoric and vicious back-stabbing. Together they form a picture of the most sophisticated highs and most brutal lows of the Roman Empire's inception, heyday and decline. The Roman Empire included within its boundaries myriad peoples, cultures and climates. The task of ruling it seems an impossible one, even with today's communication technology. So how was it achieved two thousand years ago? And why has ancient Rome had such a profound influence on western civilization ever since?
Using unequalled location footage, previously unseen images and careful re-enactments, this informative and entertaining series brings to life the world of ancient Rome.
