"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 crumbling republic 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 Caesar is played by Stephen Thorne. Other parts are played by Alex Davion and Peter Penry-Jones.
