Made in 1968 and broadcast to tremendous critical acclaim, The Caesars was one of the last great drama productions made in black and white for ITV by Granada. The Caesars is an unrivalled period drama detailing the murder, sex and madness that will forever have a place in the annals of ancient history. This six-part series is available for the first time anywhere on DVD.

After a century of being wrecked by dissension and ruinous civil wars, the Romans were willing to pay any price for peace and internal security. This happened to be the absolute rule of an Emperor-dictator - Augustus (Roland Culver – The Life & Death of Colonel Blimp, Dead of Night). After ruthlessly disposing of all possible rivals and enemies, Augustus’ later years were bedevilled by the question of his successor. He firmly believed that for the good of Rome, the dictatorship must continue, but he hadn’t bargained on those who followed him… Featuring outstanding performances from famed character actor André Morell (The Bridge on the River Kwai, Ben-Hur), Ralph Bates (Dr. Jekyll and Sister Hyde, Poldark) and an award-winning performance by Freddie Jones (Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed), The Caesars the Complete Series will appeal to all fans of dramas with high production values. This release will appeal to anyone who enjoyed the BBC’s recent series Rome and its classic antecedent – I, Claudius.
