A truly epic saga of dynastic conflict at the heart of Imperial Rome, I Claudius was the landmark BBC drama series of the 1970s. Originally transmitted as 13 50-minute episodes, the series dramatises the human face of ancient Rome as interpreted by Robert Graves in his two enormously complex novels, I, Claudius and Claudius The God. Derek Jacobi gives one of the greatest television performances ever as Claudius, the appalled chronicler of the decadence, corruption, intrigue and carnage which comes with the absolute power of his ruling family.

Its brief material, from the curiosity of its subject and the natural search for parallel which it suggests, proved capable of leading to a quite indefinite expansion; so that any scheme of exhaustive treatment, such as the primary object of the work made appropriate, had to yield for the most part to the pursuit of more individual threads of interest.
