What have the Romans ever done for the Britons, besides the roads, towns, clean water, sanitation, commerce, housing, baths, theaters, entertainment, and peace? Nothing!

Vespasian was not corrupt. He chose not to enrich himself by public office, unlike many of his contemporaries and, dare I say say, many of today's politicians and military brass. No wonder they dedicated a theatre to his memory!

I love, LOVE, the softly spoken academic. What a storyteller! What a teacher!
He's that teacher from your past that held you captivated at the time and you've learnt to cherish since.

'The eccentric' emperor, Caligula. Lol, I think that is the kindest description of Little Boots I have ever heard. :-)

The old man who is telling the story is a perfect storyteller... he can make a great voiceover ! :)



Rome is still the best example of how superpowers rise and fall. Technology change. Borders change. But the core stays the same.Power, corruption, Rich and poor, military, etc, etc

"Why Vespasian Was Rome's Most Liked Emperor" - I don't think they answer this question it's just his story before he became emperor. They should have focused on his reign too.

Vespasian: a man of true Roman stock, strength & austerity. Every European today ought to be like him.

I love how the Roman Legionnaires in the field are grimy and have a 'worn out' look to them. This documentary has very solid production value.

This Timeline series is one of the best things to be put on YouTube.

If I was a billionaire I would fund an 'HBO Rome' type series about Vespasian.

The soldiers are the re-enactment group called the ermine street guard. They are brilliant.

It's strange, in today's world, when the poor man becomes "leader", they often become tyrant and dictator. Good leaders are born into it and primed for the position. In ancient Rome, Vespasian came from nothing and ruled with class and mostly kindness, while the people born into high positions became the tyrant and dictator.
