THE ADVENTURES OF IVANHOE Volume: ONE
Ivanhoe is a British television series first shown on ITV in 1958-59. It featured Roger Moore, in his first starring role, as Sir Wilfred of Ivanhoe, in a series of adventures aimed at a children's audience. It used characters drawn loosely from Sir Walter Scott's 1819 novel. The series was set in England during the 12th century reign of King Richard the Lionheart, who had gone to fight in the Crusades and failed to return. In his absence, power had been taken by his younger brother, the ambitious and wicked Prince John, who sought to strip the people of their rights and land. The dashing and heroic knight Ivanhoe, with his father-and-son companions Gurth and Bart whom he had freed from servitude (from the evil Sir Maurice), attempted to right wrongs, secure justice, help those in need, and thwart John and his allies. In the show.
In the first episode we find Prince John still wanting to be King of England when he hears his brother Richard might be coming back to England to regain the title. When John hears that a knight named Sir Rupbert had sailed on a ship with Richard and is now trying to reach Ivanhoe for help, John plots to kill the knight. In show number two Prince John won’t give up when he tries to take over the throne of England, but if anything he should know is doesn’t mess with Ivanhoe.
