HISTORY | 9:00 pm

King Arthur arguably was the first pop-culture superhero of England, since his thrilling adventures have inspired countless bestselling books, blockbuster films and hit television series. Without this iconic figure, we might never have bad "Lord of the Rings," "Game of Thrones" or perhaps even "Star Wars" and "Star Trek." The impact these timeless stories have had on Western culture is hard to measure. The new episode "The Search for King Arthur" examines whether Arthur's story is mere folklore or the story of a flesh-and-blood man.
