Swashbucklers is the first study of one of the most popular and
enduring genres in television history - the costume adventure
series. It maps the history of swashbuckling television from its
origins in the 1950s to the present. It places the various series
in their historical and institutional contexts and also analyses
how the form and style of the genre has changed over time. And it
includes case studies of major swashbuckling series including The
Adventures of Robin Hood, The Buccaneers, Ivanhoe, William Tell,
Zorro, Arthur of the Britons, Dick Turpin, Robin of Sherwood,
Sharpe, Hornblower, The Count of Monte Cristo and the recent BBC
co-production of The Three Musketeers. -- .
