In the first episode of Timeline Tapes, we’re presenting Tony Robinson’s Romans: Caesar Pt 1 as he takes us through the first part of the life of Julius Caesar. He is joined by historians and Rome academics Ray Laurence and Andrew Wallace Hadrill who are able to provide more insight into one of the most powerful men in history.

In this episode, Tony continues the story of Julius Caesar as he completes his conquest of Gaul and heads back to civil war in Rome, to Alexandria and the arms of Cleopatra, and eventually to his doom at the hands of his people. To tell the story of the fall of Caesar, Tony is joined by historians Chris Pelling and Andrew Wallace Hadrill.
