      A HISTORIE

      In 1978, the BBC set itself the task of filming all of William Shakespeare’s plays for television. The resulting productions, renowned for their loyalty to the text, utilised the best theatrical and television directors and brought great performances from leading contemporary actors.

      “Cry Havoc! And let slip the dogs of war”

      The crowds may have hailed Julius Caesar after his conquering of Pompey the Great, but there are other Romans who are alarmed at the power and authority the great dictator is assuming. Among them are a leading citizen Cassius and the respected Marcus Brutus, a friend of Caesar. The consequences of their actions will soon throw the Republic into violent and bitter turmoil . . .

      Shakespeare’s greatest Roman tragedy breaks all conventional rules of drama, creating neither a clear-cut hero nor villain. Director Herbert Wise, who also directed the great BBC dramas I Claudius and Elizabeth R. brilliantly, conveys a world of personal and political conflict while allowing the play’s chilling supernatural undercurrent to emerge.

      "Hence, home, you idle creatures, get you home!
      Is this a holiday? What, know you not,
      Being mechanical, you ought not walk
      Upon a labouring day without the sign
      Of your profession? – Speak, what trade art thou?”

      Richard Pasco   Keith Michell
      Virginia McKenna
      David Collings
      and Charles Gray

    ABOUT JULIUS CAESAR

    Herbert Wise brings his power and original ability to this distinguished production of one of the best historical dramas ever written . . . On 21st September 1599 a Swiss doctor, Thomas Platter, saw what can only have been Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar “very pleasingly performed” in the newly built Globe Theatre – ‘the straw-thatched house” – on the south side of the Thames . . . It first appeared in print in the 1623 Folio . . .
