In this period action series, Wilhelm ('William', several names are anglicized) Tell isn't just a father whose masterly archery saves his boy (Matthew)'s life but more of a Swiss Robin Hood in medieval times, before the Alpine country became the present stand-alone republican Helvetic Confederation, who stands up time and again against grim feudal oppression, as administered by Governor Hermann Gessler and other noble lords, who exploit and abuse the simple mountain villagers practically as serfs.

Years ago did I watch these series on television. The actors were perfect for the roles! Especially Will Lyman alias William Tell and Jeremy Clyde alias Hermann Gessler. The soundtrack and music is made by Stanislas Syrewicz and is very good. The story is also good with very much action and stunts, but NOT too much violence and I think that that is important for children.
The creator of this series did a great job! Pity that it doesn't come up that much on television. I prefer this serie to Robin Hood or Ivan Hoe. Crossbow is great!
