Description
In Part 1, demo recordings of Tom Scott's songs "If you would love me" and "Sirocco" (two versions) were performed. In Part 2, an unidentified film or television show about the tales of Robin Hood and his Merry Men was presented. In this episode, David of Doncaster is slated to be excuted, but thanks to a stolen signet ring by Robin Hood's new friend Tammy Sly, he acts as an messager, bringing Sir Stephen of Trent to Nottingham, so David of Doncaster can escape the Sheriff of Nottingham, thanks to Robin Hood's Merry Men. Tom Scott is the narrator and vocalist of this episode, singing his "Down derry, so merry" (?) as the Merry Men rejoice at the end of the episode.
