This TV show Is About.
Merlin (also known as The Adventures of Merlin) is a British fantasy-adventure drama television programme, loosely based on the Arthurian legends regarding the close relations of Merlin and King Arthur. Created by Julian Jones, Jake Michie, Johnny Capps, Julian Murphy for the BBC, it was broadcast for five series on BBC One, between 20 September 2008 to 24 December 2012. The programme starred Colin Morgan, Bradley James, Richard Wilson, Angel Coulby, Katie McGrath and John Hurt.The programme is a reimagining of the traditional legend, in which a young Merlin is sent to Camelot by his mother, and becomes the servant to Arthur. During his time, he learns that his magical powers must be used to protect Arthur, but also must be kept hidden because magic was outlawed in Camelot by Arthur's father Uther Pendragon, and those caught practising it are executed. In time, Merlin and Arthur bond as friends, with the former doing his best to influence the latter into becoming the mighty king he is destined to be, unaware of what his actions will do in shaping this destiny.Merlin received mixed reviews when it premiered, but gained good ratings which improved as the story progressed, becoming the most popular programme to watch on the BBC's digital catch-up service iPlayer. During its time it was nominated for several awards, winning the 2011 British Academy Film Awards for best visual effects. Broadcasting rights were sold to over 180 countries, becoming a mainstay on digital network platform Netflix in both the US and the UK.
