Editor reviews

The conqueror responsible for the rise of the Roman Empire and one of the most fascinatingly complicated characters in all of human history, Britain’s Robert Rietty richly narrates the action in this bold dramatization of the remarkable and violent life of Julius Caesar, written by John Green and not to be confused with one Sir William Shakespeare.
Stephen Thorne robustly performs the title character with both authoritative and empathetic tones. Alex Davion and Peter Penry-Jones ably perform additional characters.

Summary

"Veni, vidi, vici" - "I came, I saw, I conquered", he boasted: and no one could say he lied. Few other men in history have received so much praise and so much condemnation, and few other men achieved such power. Soldier, statesman, lawyer, priest, writer, social reformer, national leader, fortune builder, and organizer of the infamous Roman Games. Caesar's life was full of anomalies. He transformed Rome from a crumblingrepublic to a state on the road to imperial power. The story of his life, work, and now legendary assassination, make absorbing listening. The part of Julius Ceasar is played by Stephen Thorne. Other parts are played by Alex Davion and Peter Penry-Jones.
