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.

Blacklisted in Hollywood, Ring Lardner Jr. and Ian McLellan Hunter, wrote almost the entire first season of this British-filmed series under a variety of pen-names. The show's British producers were fully aware of this deception, but Lardner and Hunter still changed pseudonyms every few episodes to keep the American syndication executives from asking to meet the series' writers.

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.
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.
