Tony Robinson sets out to sift the fact from the fiction on whether Robin Hood, the legendary dispossessed nobleman hiding out in Sherwood Forest did actually exist.
Few legends are more famous than that of Robin Hood, the dispossessed nobleman hiding out in Sherwood Forest at the time of Richard the Lionheart.
Tony has a particular interest in the character. He wrote and starred in the children’s television series Maid Marian and Her Merry Men, and is a passionate historian as well.
But did Robin actually exist? And if he existed, what was he like? Did he really steal from the rich to give to the poor? And who were the merry men?
Join in, as Tony strings together the historical pieces and figure out if Robin Hood was fact or fiction.
