Being King Arthur, a film we co-produced about the self-proclaimed reincarnation of the mythical King Arthur, will be screened eight times this month on the Community Channel (free to air channel available in all UK homes).
Is it possible to be the reincarnation of a mythical monarch? King Arthur Pendragon says yes, here he is.
In 1986, Johnny Rothwell, a former British soldier turned biker had a realisation. The daydream world he would often drift into when he was a child was in fact dark-age Britain. He was the reincarnation of the mythical King Arthur.
Since then, equipped in full battle robes and crown, carrying his four and a half foot Celtic broad sword Excalibur (made for the 1981 movie) and riding his trusty steed - a Triumph motorcycle - he has taken up his quest: to fight for truth, honour and justice.
Being King Arthur tells the story of a very modern day druid King and his Knights of the Round Table at their castle Camelot - Stonehenge.
