The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire
In the greatest historical work in English, Gibbon continues the story of Rome after the death of Claudius.
This special Chronicle programme looks at some of the themes of his story and at the same time five historians and archaeologists take us to the splendid sights of Roman antiquity and show how modern research has thrown new light on the history which Gibbon tells.
The part of Edward Gibbon is played by Clive Swift The contributors are Barry Cunliffe M. I. Finlay
Robert Ireland
Magnus Magnusson and John Julius Norwich
Ambitious, laced with wit, constantly good looking ... (THE GUARDIAN) Splendidly rich, dense and informative programme ... (THE TIMES) The moment of enormous fulfilment tinged with regret when Gibbon finished the task of nearly 20 years was magical
