Caligula with Mary Beard

Synopsis
Professor Mary Beard presents this historical documentary about Roman Emperor Gaius Julius Caesar Augustus Germanicus: more commonly known as Caligula. After only four years in power Caligula was assassinated while still just a young man. Professor Beard investigates whether there is any truth behind the stories told of the emperor’s tyrannical and scandalous behaviour which gave him such a bad reputation.
