Summary Merlin the Legend takes a fascinating look at the mythical roots in art and literature of Merlin - magician, hero and historical mystery. Merlin is the archetypal wizard: Welsh and Celtic in origin, but with connections in Cornwall and middle Europe and of course, the Arthurian legends. Merlin is clearly the ancestor of Dumbledore and all those weird and wonderful wizards which people our literature. The documentary traces Merlin's continuing presence in arts and culture across the world right up to the present day, through blockbuster films, videogames or New Age gatherings at Stonehenge. He offers something beyond mundane daily life. It's magic. It's irresistible. (From the UK) (Documentary) G CC WS
