Epic four-hour series about the rise of Octavius who succeeds Julius Caesar and tangles with Marc Anthony for control of the Roman empire and finally went on to become the emperor Augustus.
When shooting started, the series was supposed to be eight hours long. When it was clear, that the show was going to excessively run over budget, it was cut down to six hours.
Believe it or not, the death of Caesar was necessary for the well-being of Rome. For what lofty purpose did you kill these men?
During the final battle between Antony's and Octavius's armies, Tyranus removes two silver emblems from his chest to denounce Antony and fight for Octavius. In the next shot, they are there again. Later, they disappear once more.
