Stanley Van Beers,
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. Written by

I loved this as a kid as well. Although it was black and white it didn't matter, only added to the whole. Especially when as an adult,looking back. Richard Greene was the ultimate English dashing hero and Bernadette O'Farrell was gorgeous! I can't remember all of the cast and certainly not Paul Eddington, that was a surprise, but they were all great. The actor playing The Sheriff of Nottingham was marvellously villainous. I would love to see it re-run just to see whether kids of today would still find it as exhilarating as we did then with that marvellous opening shot (literally!) of the arrow being loosed by Robin with the sound turned all the way up! Ripping stuff! Scott Farrell Strichen
