Like many others I'm sure who buy this I watched this series as a child in the 1970s. It actually holds up quite well and is a good counterpoint to the BBC's current Merlin series. I actually think that it would make a good revival. Production values are pretty good although everyone appear to be remarkably clean with very nice hair! Some of the crowd scenes suffer from a lack of crowds but if you enjoyed this as a child there's every chance you still will.

Produced in the early 1970s, Arthur of the Britons may come across as a little creaky nowadays, but when viewed in a historical context it's an entertaining and strikingly original family adventure series. The series cleverly eschews the famous elements of the Arthur legend - Sir Lancelot, Excalibur, Guinevere - in favour of a more down-to-earth historical style. Here Arthur is more a tribal leader than a shining king. Rather than Camelot, he rules over a small community and a wooden fort. As one of several British tribal leaders, he works to fend off the invading Saxons. It's an interesting and original angle, and one that foreshadows later British TV dramas such as the 1980s classic Robin of Sherwood. The cast, led by Oliver Tobias, is strong and appealing. British cult TV fans will certainly get a kick out of Brian Blessed's guest appearances - as a typically boisterous and loud warrior chief. For the cult TV aficionado, Arthur of the Britons is a must-buy.
