After their father (arthur Skinner) has become a man on the run accused of a murder he did not commit, his kids Alice (Jane Asher) and Oswald (Peter Asher) are taken in by the local nobleman Sir Walter (John Longden) to become his serfs - something they don't approve of, so they make a getaway and soon bump into Robin Hood (Richard Grene) and his merry men, where their father has also found abode. Robin though thinks it's best to send them away to live with Maid Marian (Bernadette O'Farrell), since a life with  outlaws is nothing for little children ... so they actually capture Sir Walter in an attempt to prove themselves worthy of Robin's gang. As it happens, Robin's men also manage to capture Sir Walter's Sergeant of Arms (Willoughby Gray) - and find proof on him that it was actually him who killed the man whose murder the kids' dad was accused of. And since Sir Walter is a just man, he promises to see it that his Sergeant gets his just desserts in a court of law while the kids' father will be cleared of all suspicions and reinstated in his former position as a free man and farmer - a word Sir Walter keeps, too.

 

Stories about children achieving the almost impossible with a little bit of ingenuity are usually hard to swallow, but this one isn't bad inasmuch as it breaks away from the formula of Adventures of Robin Hood that usually has someone getting into trouble and Robin dashing to the rescue about half way through the story - actually, Robin is made into a supporting character in this episode, which is a welcome change. Plus, 9-year old later soap star Jane Asher clearly shows talent here.
