Derek Jacobi: Spoken word audio has been a regular part of Derek Jacobi's extensive acting career. Following his success with the BBC television series of Robert Graves' I Claudius and Claudius the God, he recorded the work for audiobook. His recordings now encompass a wide variety of readings, including the Brother Cadfael series and, significantly, his landmark recording of Robert Fagel's translation of Homer's The Odyssey.
