I'm looking for something that covers the whole sweep of Roman history, from beginnings through to its ending (and influences on successors). I can find several that tell you all about a few famous Emperors, but I'm not bumping into anything that covers it all.
Anyone suggest something good? Or even a couple that between them cover it?
(I don't need huge amounts of detail - but on the other hand, I don't mind watching several hours of documentary series, if it's good.)
