Ivanhoe (1970 TV series)

Ivanhoe was a BBC television series from 1970. The script was by Alexander Baron, based on Sir Walter Scott's novel Ivanhoe. The director was David Maloney.

It was shown at Sunday tea-time on BBC1, which for several years showed fairly faithful adaptations of classic novels aimed at a family audience. It was later shown on US television. It consisted of ten 25-minute episodes. Eric Flynn, who played the title role, became better known for his work in stage musicals.[1] Other cast members, such as John Franklyn-Robbins, Hugh Walters and Bernard Horsfall, were regulars in British TV classic dramas of the 1960s and 1970s.

The complete series was released on a Region 2 DVD two-disc set in September 2017 by Simply Media.
