Perhaps one of the most popular legends of modern history, this is the original series, filmed in authentic settings, and featuring the daring, dashing rogue and his followers. Robin Hood, his fair maidens and his band of merry men bring high adventure in authentic settings.

The immortal hero Robin Hood becomes known for stealing from the rich and giving to the poor. An archer and swordsman in Nottinghamshire, also known as Robin of Locksley, Robin Hood's virtues and heroic behavior have made him an iconic character.

Robin Hood and his group of Sherwood-Forest-based freedom fighters protect England from the evil machinations of Prince John, while good King Richard was away at the Crusades. The show is filled with brilliant British character actors, and includes scripts penned by blacklisted writers, such as Ring Lardner, Jr., who worked using an alias. Among the show's stars are Richard Greene, Bernadette O'Farrell and Donald Pleasance.
