Arthur of the Britons

I am hugely enjoying watching this 70's TV series.   Brian Blessed, hamming relentlessly! Tom Baker, ditto!  Actually, lots of people all making a drama out of a crisis, apart from Arthur (Oliver Tobias), who is rather subtle and dangerous (if a bit pouty) with 70's Rock Hair and is my new Favorite TV Arthur... 

Lots of horses hammering around at top speed (I don't think people on TV ride horses as fast as that now,on the whole, it really looks dangerous).   Hilarious wigs, bizarre beards,  strange leather jackets with have a definite 1970s-not-500s vibe about them, mad battles with really-not-enough people... and yet, the plots are weirdly compelling! 

  Did people in the 70's actually have more teeth than we do now?
