5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Classrooms! Oct. 22 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I have used this movie before in my English II class as we are reading Morte de Arthur. It really helps the students develop a sense of how Camelot's legend came about and how much of it could be true. Every year, someone asks, "Is this a folk tale, truth or non-fiction?" Now I pop in the tape and let them make up their own minds.

4.0 out of 5 stars More legend than history... Nov. 23 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
A good introduction to Arthurian legend. I was hoping the video would spend more time on the historical and archaeological data that supports (or doesn't support) the arguments about whether or not Arthur really existed. The video spent more time tracking the development of the legend in literature. Enjoyable all the same.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is just a documentary folks, not a Hollywood blockbuster . . . May 1 2011

A & E's DVD on "Camelot" is one of the better documentaries on the subject of King Arthur's folklore and gives details in several different mindsets on related issues. Leonard Nimoy narrates this video and there are several landscape nature photography shots and sweeping footage on location that helps this movie be the one that adults should prefer over most of the other videos by other narrators or other producing studios. Whereas most documentaries are juvenile and a tad on the amateur side in presentation, this version has enough interesting information that not only will you keep it in your library, you'll gladly watch it more than once. One point of interest was the birthplace of Arthur and how the archaeology discoveries are connecting that location with the right time period, another is the information on the Holy Grail and how it is tied to Joseph of Arimathea, and of course the details surrounding the location and legends of Camelot. There is time given to different ancient authors and what emphasis was given by those authors to specific parts of the Arthurian folklore - including how the burial place of King Arthur and Guinevere helped a city and monastery by tourism. Interviews with scholars round out the scope of this film, making this one superior to the others typically geared to preteen audiences.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting film June 2 2014
By Ronafish79 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This is one of those A&E TV documentaries. Not really all that bad. Leonard Nemoy hosts and you explore what was once King Arthurs realm. They still can’t say with certainty that there was no Arthur or the knights of the round, let alone a Camelot.

They cover a lot of the history of Arthur, ok not history unless you know it is fact, so they cover a lot of the legend of King Arthur. All the different tales about him, Lancelot, Camelot, Galahad, Merlin a little. His supposed burial site, they give credit to Arthur for stone hedge being in England.

A&E Mysteries have always been fascinating, but they never really seem to solve any great mysteries. Still I think this movie was interested. Glad I got a chance to watch it.

I bought this to share with my class to preview our King Arthur unit. It almost put me to sleep. Don't waste your money
