Episode 4 - Robin Hood
There are few legends more famous than that of Robin Hood, the dispossessed nobleman hiding out in Sherwood Forest at the time of Richard the Lionheart. Tony Robinson has a particular interest in the character. He wrote and starred in the children's television series Maid Marian and Her Merry Men, after all. Tony embarks on a personal quest to uncover the fact behind the fiction. Did Robin actually exist? What was he really like? Did he steal from the rich to give to the poor? Who were the merry men?
Tony's journey takes him all over England: from Yorkshire to Shropshire, Warwickshire, Kirklees Priory - to investigate the colourful legend of Robin's death - and, eventually, Sherwood Forest. With the help of historic records, experts' contributions and ancient ballads, Tony lines up four main suspects, tying them into relevant historical events, such as the proliferation of the longbow and the Lancastrian Revolt.
