A BBC studio production of Shakespeare's play directed by Eoin O'callaghan and set in Rome in 1925 under the shadow of Fascism. Julius Caesar, a new Roman dictator, has swept to power. He has eliminated Pompey, and the way is now clear for him to assume total control - unless a coup led by Cassius and Brutus can alter the tide of history. With a cast including Nicholas Farrell (Brutus), Samantha Bond (Portia), Gerard Murphy (Julius Caesar), Stella Gonet (Calphurnia), Jonathan Firth (Mark Anthony), Colin Mcfarlane (Cassius) and Nicholas Grace (Casca).
