The Right Honorable James Hacker has landed the plum job of Cabinet Minister to the Department of Administration. At last he is in a position of power and can carry out some long-needed reforms - or so he thinks.
The mini-series follows the history of the Roman Empire, from approximately the death of Marcellus (24/23 BC) to Claudius' own death in 54 AD. As Claudius narrates his life, we witness Augustus' attempts to find an heir, often foiled by his wife Livia who wants her son Tiberius to become emperor. We also see the conspiracy of Sejanus, the infamous reign of Caligula, and Claudius' own troubled period of rule. Written by

You have a kid who hates Ancient History? Check this set of 6 videos out of
your library or buy the whole set. Well worth it, either way. Now I'm all
anxious to find out what the History books say about this period in our
past. As the 'gods 'intermarried, you can see the result of the DNA codes
gone berserk. Of course, there is also the element of the insanity
producing power of absolute power itself!!!! Who's to say which ingredient
was the worst?
With all this killing, one wonders why people complain about the video game
killing? This really happened and with people who were supposedly the most
superior of the Roman Empire. (See paragraph above for reasons.)
Each episode is a gem unto itself, and the acting is superb.
What more can I say? Needless to gild the lily!!
Amen to the vote on Best Series in TV History
