Comedian Marcus Brigstocke pokes fun at history television shows in ‘We Are History’ series (2000):

Comedian Marcus Brigstocke plays fictional television presenter David Oxley: a self-aggrandising English historian, who is defeated by inaccurate, unreliable data and his own unremitting errors of judgement — not to mention being a tad overzealous in his inquiries. A brilliant parody.

All 12 episodes of BBC‘s We Are History series (including King Arthur: Myth or Legend? above), can be found here on YouTube.
