One of the best-loved productions of the Robin Hood legend, this 1975 series tells of the life and adventures of an enduring hero. Famous for his gallantry, his love for Maid Marian and his struggles against injustice and tyranny, Robin Hood is one of the legendary characters of English history. This classic BBC production remains one of the most historically accurate versions of the Robin Hood story; a tale which embodies the true romance, excitement and heroism of the outlaw. Robin Hood is a young idealist and a reluctant leader of men. Ignorant of his true noble background, incensed by the dispossession of his lands and driven to fight for the people against a corrupt establishment - he is forced to become an outlaw. As his band of merry men - including Little John, Friar Tuck and Will Scarlet - vow to steal from the rich to give the poor they become heroes to the ordinary people, but bitter enemies of the Sheriff of Nottingham and his ally SIr Guy of Gisbourne.
