His story is one of the most familiar of all English folk tales - the leader of a band of merry renegades, who corrects society's injustices by stealing from the rich to give to the poor. But is there any basis in truth behind the tales of Robin Hood? "History's Mysteries" journeys from Sherwood Forest to the office of the real-life Sheriff of Nottingham in search of the answer. Scholars relate Medieval ballads that tell of a reckless villain interested only in lining his pockets - a far cry from the fables that have come down to us. And we'll explore the controversy over the origins of these tales - did they really start not in Sherwood Forest, but in Barnsdale? Experts like Richard Rutherford Moore, author of "The Legend Of Robin Hood" help separate the fact from the fiction in the stories of the romantic hero whose exploits have enchanted us for centuries. Packed with film clips, period artwork and commentary from the world's leading experts, this is a compelling look at "The True Story Of Robin Hood".
