Good introduction to some chapters of Roman history,
This review is from: Ancient Rome: The Rise and Fall of an Empire [DVD] (DVD)
While this BBC series does not have the fine scenery details and generally superior acting of HBO Rome, it is a good mixture of history and drama. Through its 6 chapters, the series touches some less known (popular) episodes of Roman history, including the emperor Constantine and his conversion to christianism, or the chain of betrayal between Rome last emperors and Allarico, king of the Godes. Overall, I highly recommend this series. I would love a more complete version that allocates a more even treatment of the almost 1000 years of Rome history: one or two episodes for every 100 years?

HBO? I think you mean BBC-HBO Rome. Most of the actors are British.
