Storyline

A long-running series of adventures featuring Robin of Loxley - Robin Hood - and his group of Sherwood-Forest-based freedom fighters. Robin and his men protected England from the evil machinations of Prince John while good King Richard was away at the Crusades. The series was primarily intended for children, and was unusual in that it frequently re-used the same actors in different roles, or different actors in a recurring roles.

24 February 2004 | by (Melbourne , Australia) – See all my reviews

Yes, this was, indeed, a fine production. Richard Green certainly brought the character of Robin Hood to sparkling life with a dashing personality and great conviction.

Australia's own Errol Flynn did a pretty good job as well. But there's something definite about the famous hero being portrayed by a "Proper Englishman" .

These shows were fun. They made history entertaining.

It's a shame that kids don't have this sort of educational fare to fire their imagination these days.

Period films and television series have frequently come in for a great deal of criticism over the years and much of the flack has been entirely justified.

However, some of the better productions which have graced both the big and small screens have presented tales of earlier times in a way that the printed word has often been unable to.
