Period drama serial. The lives of the various Cleopatras (actually of Greek descent) who ruled over Egypt from 145bc – 35 bc.
The Cleopatras came in for a huge amount of ridicule and caused quite a degree of controversy on it’s original broadcast with it’s ample nudity. Series creator Philip Mackie had done a similar job on Roman history with his earlier serial The Caesars.
