It's filmed quite nicely with present day actors in costume portraying Robin Hood, Maid Marion, and Robin's band of men. Excellent photos of artifacts, medieval ruins and the Sherwood Forest accompany the documentary. There are also sword fights, sober moments, and merriment between Robin and his group, keeping the viewer entertained. I never found myself bored and the 70+ minutes were over before I knew it. This film certainly rivals anything I've seen on the History channel.
During the documentary, Mr. Gardiner explores records in history, while comparing folklore against it to see whether or not Robin Hood truly lived. No stone is left unturned. So, was Robin Hood real or a mythological man? The viewer will have to judge for him/herself after watching this film. I tend to believe there's a little bit of Robin Hood in all of us.
The True Story of Robin Hood is more entertaining.

and questionable scholarship. I do not care for it.
And I doubt that you would either. Read more
