I, Claudius

Everything takes a back seat while this is on BBC4. First shown in 1976 (the year I also debuted), the drama still stands up.
Excellent performances from Brian Blessed, Derek Jacobi and George Baker in particular.
Always thought I’d make a good Roman Emperor (Stephanus Utterus Bastardus?).
BBC4 are showing all twelve episodes on consecutive nights, part three is tonight at 9pm.
Do yourself a favour and watch it.
