Few men in history have as formidable or as mighty a reputation as Julius Caesar. He is not only one of the central figures of Roman history but a man who shaped the future of the world as we know it today. Rapid promotion from a humble civil servant to military leader put him in command of the powerful Roman Legions who completed the rout of Gaul and Britain. His success established him as a great, but also as a bloodthirsty, general. His political ambitions earned him many enemies, especially in Rome - the city that would ultimately prove to be the location of his demise and assassination. This programme features expert analysis and comment as well as dramatic reconstructions and period imagery.
