Synopsis by Hal Erickson
This self-explanatory British drama series was a coproduction of the BBC and its American distributor, Time-Life. In straightforward, nonjudgmental fashion, the series' eight half-hour episodes recounted the saga of Arthur, Camelot, and the Round Table, utilizing a topnotch British cast and superlative production values. Not surprisingly, special emphasis was given to the clandestine romance between Arthur's queen Guinevere (Felicity Dean) and his trusted knight Lancelot Du Lac (a very young David Robb). The Legend of King Arthur first aired in Britain from October 7 to November 25, 1979.
