Directed by John Michael Phillips
John Michael Phillips directs this made-for-TV drama based on the 14th century Middle English poem.
Set in an Arthurian realm of myth, the drama commences at Christmastime when a mysterious figure calling himself The Green Knight (Malcolm Storry) rides unannounced into a gathering in the court of King Arthur (Marc Warren) and dares anyone brave enough to lop off his head.
Sir Gawain (Jason Durr) rises to the challenge but becomes only too aware of what he has let himself in for when The Green Knight calmly retrieves his fallen head and returns to his horse: a condition of the beheading is that The Green Knight can return in a year and repay the compliment...
