Notes
The BBC Audience Research Viewing Panel Report noted many complaints about the sound balance - ‘the effects boys were having a field day’, but many felt the ‘wealth of magnificent speeches, dramatic intensity and telling reflections on political ambition and intrigue’ made Julius Caesar eminently suitable for television.

The Library of Congress holds master material only, no viewing copy (5/2008).
