- A retelling of the great story of King Arthur which begins in our own century when a half-drowned boy regains consciousness in a sea-cave. The white bearded man who saves him introduces himself as Arthur Pendragon, High King of Britain. As the boy recovers Arthur tells the story of his remarkable life from pulling the sword from the stone, claiming his birthright as King, to his first meeting with Merlin and his struggle to rescue the country from the grip of Saxon invaders. Arthur also recounts the heroic deeds of Sir Lancelot, Sir Percivale and Sir Gawain.
