: Drama Connections: I, Claudius

4/8. How a dramatisation of Robert Graves's classic tale of power play in ancient Rome met with colossal obstacles including legal difficulties, critical reaction and an ancient curse, before becoming a huge television hit in 1976. With contributions from Derek Jacobi and John Hurt. Meera Syal narrates.

Documentary: Drama Connections 10.35pm BBC1
There's a full complement of top-notch actors in the latest Drama Connections who queue up to talk glowingly of the fabulous 1976 BBC2 series, I Claudius.
Claudius himself, the mighty Derek Jacobi, still has warm memories of a riveting drama - a drama many thought was unmakable. There had been previous attempts to film Robert Graves's book, but they were all doomed to fail. John Hurt (who was barmy Caligula), Sian Phillips and Brian Blessed discuss their memories of a production that at first looked as if it was to go the way of all the others. "We were dreadful, we just couldn't make it natural, we were awful," booms Blessed. Yet, somehow, the public latched on to I Claudius and it quickly became a huge, talked-about hit. (AG)

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
