I, Claudius
SE1
A Touch of Murder

Monday, 20th September 1976
 9:00 pm BBC2



The Emperor Claudius looks back on his life and the machinations of his grandmother, Livia.

Still possibly the greatest thing ever on TV with at least 5 towering perfromances and a plethora of great turns from the supporting cast.

In the US, the first episode was shown in two parts (Part 2 titled: Family Affairs) and aired at various times with November 6th, 1977 being the most popular but as early as November 1976 on KAET in Arizona.
