Starting with King Arthur? How about *Monty Python and the Holy Grail*?
More seriously, there's *To Play the King*, the series that ran on
Masterpiece Theatre a few years back. Stars Ian Richardson as Francis
Urquhart, corrupt politician on the make who schemes to become Prime
Minister. (Individual titles: House of Cards, To Play the King, The Final
Cut.)

One of our political science faculty is compiling media for a new course on
the development of government in Great Britain from King Arthur forward,
particularly as the developments influenced the U.S. form of government. He
has selected several titles including A Man For All Seasons; Elizabeth R;
Elizabeth (Cate Blanchett); A Civil Action; Yes, Minister; Yes, Prime
Minister; The Rainmaker. Suggestions for additional titles will be
appreciated.
