These fantastic BBC series where recorded on video. This is on a low resolution. So to put these images on a blu-ray disc is not an image upgrade. They look absolute the same as the dvd's. The only profit is that 13 episodes kan easy fit on 2 discs. Don't upgrade your dvd collection!

I made the expensive mistake of ignoring the first review. It is accurate and, additionally, the discs won't play full screen, despite the packaging saying they will, on either my panasonic or samsung players. In my view my BBC dvd copy is at least equal in quality. It's a salutory lesson to me.

The perfect gift for all historical buffs is THE ROMA VICTRIX WINE BEAKERCalix Imperium, Roma Victrix Pewter wine beaker
Before I post my review I have to agree with previous reviewers that the quality of this transfer is not on a par with earlier versions.

I Claudius is a perfect adaptation of Robert Graves' fantastic novel. Just like the novel, its accuracy as a historical document is dubious at best - the novel was a fictional presentation of emperor Claudius' fictional autobiography, and made its own speculations on many of the events depicted, and the series does the same; Cladudius, believed by many historians to have been a barely competent, half-witted, and often cruel and violent leader, is in Graves' account the wisest and most sane man in the Roman empire; considering the fact that the story is presented from his viewpoint, though, that actually makes a lot of sense. Anyway, it doesn't matter much, because the depiction of Roman life and politics is incredibly effective and compelling, and very informative too, as long as you take it with a pinch of salt.

The cast is perfect too, and they breathe life and energy into what might have become, with lesser actors, a slow-moving and difficult to watch drama.

Some of the UK's finest actors start out here, and some experienced TV actors make standout roles; for some it's the role of a career. Brian Blessed, George Baker and John Hurt are fantastic and unforgettable as emperors Augustus, Tiberius and Caligula respectively.

Verified Purchase
The series depicts the the story of the first 4 Roman emperors including
claudius himself ,from Claudius the young man to Claudius the reluctant
Emperor,Claudius always treated like a stammering halfwit by the imperial
Household managed to keep his head when everybody lost there's ,literally.
Watching the inner workings of the Senate and imperial family he wasn't the
Blundering fool everybody was led to believe , it was unfortunate that that
he was treated with contempt by his mother and grandmother, only when claudius
Was in his late teens did Augustus take him seriously ,by then it was to late. He was then
promptly airbrushed aside during Tiberius tenure and treated like the imperial
Clown by Caligula , claudius was saved by the praetorian guard a reculantantly
Made emperor by them,to save himself from certain assassination if he abdicated
He kept the role.unfortunately his wife messalina gave him the run around and beaded
Any thing going at the time.sadly during his later life he married Caligula s younger
Sister ,and adopted her son Nero between the two of them they assassinated Claudius
And there the story ends

Bbc makes out claudius to a benign ,nice enough bloke but a bit naive
And didn't have the clout to make his opinions matter until made emperor true
Enough, but history tells a more sinister story where was no less. Blood thirsty
Than the others on the plus side he did make sweeping architecture changes where
Rome was concerned. His invasion of Britain was nearly totally omitted
Which was unfair because he finished what Julius Caesar started and.neither
The first 3 emperors. Could be bothered with

Dvd the picture is pan scan or 4.3.
