A British retelling of the classic story of Robin Hood called Robin of Sherwood is being released on DVD Blu-ray on February 14th. Robin of Sherwood stars Ray Winstone as 'Will Scarlet' and is considered to be a breakout roll for Winstone.

This is the second set of 2 which includes the remaining 13 episodes.  The DVD will have "more than nine hours of special features - including nine episode commentaries, 76 minute making of documentary, outtakes, and more," according to Monster and Critics.

This series ran on television from 1984 to 1986 and it is considered to be the blueprint for the modern Robin Hood stories today.  It was shown on PBS and Showtime in the U.S. as Robin Hood.  It also stars Sean Connery's son, Jason Connery as 'Robert of Huntingdon'.
